These are all very small. The biggest one is about six inches wide. I make them up as I go along, and I'm reluctant to re-do anything, so the results are kind of hit-or-miss. I think the first one is my favorite.

This one is about five inches wide:


This is about 5 1/2 inches. The center is crocheted and the outside tendrils are embroidered. The bottom photo is of the back, which is a printed fabric.



This was meant to be "free-form" but I think it just looks kind of lopsided. It's about 6 inches wide.


These are about 4 inches tall:

Those are really cute. Love the butterfly, and the catapiller with the question.

I like the critters!!  They have so much personality.  The pillows are very pretty.  Might I ask for the crochet pattern for the doiley pillow?

The fabric for the back of the pillow is very pretty.  Good job!!

Thanks for your comments. Smiley

I didn't use a pattern for the crochet part of the pillow, but here's a close up photo, where I think you can see how it was made and maybe just copy the stitches:

I love your work! Especially the second one, embroidery always amazes me seeing as how I'm no good at it!
