At the moment, I have my quilt to finish (getting there!), my dress pattern to figure out (turns out that using a pattern is wicked hard...this might take some time...and I might need a real live tutor...), and granny squares continuing to stack up. I've been continuing to crochet them whenever I'm away from home and need something to do with my hands, a situation I find myself in rather regularly, in fact.
Over the weekend, I decided it would be a good idea to make new throw pillow covers for my bed using them, so I made two larger squares to be the middle. Mind you, I didn't have the rest of the smaller squares with me, so I was guessing on the size. I was pretty close, thankfully.
My plan, roughly, is that I will sew these together, much like they are laid out above, then sew the entire thing to a piece of fabric, out of which I will craft myself a new throw pillow. For those of you who crochet regularly, can you let me know your thoughts on whether this will work? I'm figuring that if it doesn't work—and I realize that I need to make sure the size of my top piece is somewhat close to a standard pillow insert and that the sewn-together granny squares might turn out to be one uneven whole—it won't really be that big of a loss since this crocheting business has been a really fun experiment. And surely I will be able to think of something else equally fun to do with these squares.
If any of you have done something like this or have helpful thoughts to share, comment away!
