Make-It Monday: Pillow (and video?)

Happy Monday, everyone! I am sorry for my absence, but life has been...normal. And  by normal, I do not mean slow, structured, or mundane, but insanely busy and full. Why do we even bother answering "busy" to the question "how's it going?" The answer is always "busy" - so really, we should just answer "normal", don't you think? Anyway, I'm back today, with two things for you:

1. Linking up with Kirsteen from Life in My Houseful of Boys - I made a pillow! The actual pillow-case part is knitted, and then I made up a crocheted flower pattern (which I ended up falling in love with!) as an accent. Ta-dah:


Bonus: this was made entiredly out of the scraps yarn I was telling you about a few weeks ago. (So, for example, when I ran out of the brown right at the end of the pillow, I just supplemented it with some of the flower-colored yarn. :)


See? Adds personality. :p


2. Announcing the contest winner from my bloggy-birthday drawing!

Very cute cushion. Love the fact that you made it out of scraps too. It really is more full of character!

On first glance, I thought the cushion was burlap (which I love when juxtaposed with pretty flowers and such). Upon reading and finding that my creative friend knitted the so-called burlap: well! Now it's even more cool!
