Memory Pillow V2
Here is the second pillow, this one is 5x5 inches and can be made in any colour. Inspiration came from an image of a knit one in a magazine, it however had no pattern (was a decorative mag, not a craft one) Thought it looked nice and recreated it.
On that note, if anyone would like to see a particular type of memory pillow, hanging, hat, any memorial item at all, by all means let me know. I cant promise I can make it, but I can try! I'm always open to suggestions! If you would like to email me links or photos or scans, go for it. I'm all about creating to help!

Bow Centre - Make 1 in main colour
R1. ch12, hdc in each stitch across
R2. Ch2, turn, hdc in each st across. Finish off leaving 4 inch tail for sewing.
sew the centre bow piece around the main bow so it pulls the main bow in slightly.
With right sides facing, sandwich the bow between the pillow pieces. Starting in the top right corner stitch around the edges until you get to the top left corner.
Turn the pillow in the right way and stuff, then sew the last side closed.
Thats it, your done! Pretty simple and only uses a few stitches. this one took me about an hour in total.
