The pattern to make your own "Peek-a-Boo Pillows" and can be found in Knitting Loves Crochet by Candi Jensen. Lots of lovely projects in this book. You will be inspired to pick up your hooks and needles.
Thinking there was so much potential in the openwork design of the crocheted front, I began searching for the right fabric to make the pillow form. I stumbled upon some off cuts of pre-quilted cottons I received from a friend (thanks, Jacqueline!). Stitching those pieces together so that the seam would be in the middle of the front, I thought I could hide it under the seam that joined the crochet motifs together. Yes! It worked.
Now, when it came time to sew a pillow form for the blue cover, I did not have enough scraps in one colour. I was just able to make the front by piecing two scraps together and hiding the seam under the mid line of the crochet pattern, but had to use a cream colour to sew the back of the pillow form. Thankfully, it also worked well and you don't notice that the form has two colours.
Paired together, I'm quite happy with the results and surprised at how much better that pale green yarn looks now that it has the bright blue behind it.
Happier still, that I used up some small bits from my stash and that the newest pillows should go quite nicely with that king-sized quilt I have planned for our bed.
