New Join Method + Pillow Covers

Lots of new pillow covers for 14", 16" and 18" pillows. I used a new join method I created you might have seen in my other blanket post below. There is no sewing the front and back pieces together, no single crocheting or whip stitching them together. Around the edge it gives a really neat braided look to the finished item, and is very simple to do.



 I love these colors :)





 "I Love This Yarn!" again here.....


 Red Heart's NEW variegated blues & gray here and a matching light gray.
 Love these colors together!
These pillow covers as well as a few more I've made will all be listed in my shop very soon!
