The Project Revel

Didn't mean to keep you waiting about my mystery project, but since it was a stash-busting project, what it would become kept changing as the limited yarn dictated.  So this is what the project became:

The front

It's a crocheted zippered granny pillow case.  The inside reveals another zippered case that doubles as a lining.  That casing is sewn to the crocheted case.  It will fit a 16"x16" pillow form, or if you're like me, you just stuff pillow cases with poly-fil.  :-)

What lessons did I learn with this project?
  1. How to shorten a zipper from the top.  
  2. How to shorten a zipper from the bottom. 
  3.  How to hand-stitch a zipper into place. 
  4.  How to be flexible when working with leftover yarns - I changed the layout a bazillion times because I would run out of yarn in the wrong place. In the end, I tied the scraps of all colors together to sc an edge around the entire project. lol
In a sense, I guess you could say that this project is reversible.

The Back

Soon to be listed in my shop!

Happy Crafting,
