Faux Heart Crochet Pillow Pattern

Notes:

  • The pillow is worked flat in two panels then sc together.
  • The faux fur panel is made slightly smaller than the other panel. If I used the same st count as the Wool-Ease, it came out too big. As you’re stitching the two sides together, you may need to stretch the faux fur side a little as you go.
  • This pillow is not intended for small children. They maybe able to pull the stuffing out through the stitches, posing a choking hazard.

Sc around the edge

Seaming

Lay the faux fur panel rs down.

Lay the Wool-Ease panel rs up on top of the faux fur panel. Ws are facing each other.

Line up panels for seaming

With the faux fur yarn begin to sc the two panels together. The faux fur panel is slightly smaller but you can stretch it some while you’re seaming.

Sc the panels together

Make sure the panels are lining up properly as you go. You will have more sc sts on the Wool-Ease edge. That means, you may have to sc in the same Wool-Ease space twice to keep the faux fur panel lined up.

Sc the edges together until you reach the center between the two humps.

Stuffing:

Stuff pillow with desired amount of stuffing. Careful not to over stuff.

Sc around until you reach the center of the humps

Once stuffed, finish the sc edge, fasten off. Weave in ends.

Finished seams

I hope you love making the Faux Heart Crochet Pillow pattern as much as I do!

Happy Making!
