Several months back, I had found the perfect bird applique to add to a teal pillow cover I had crocheted YEARS ago and had been sitting on a shelf.  I shared it on Instagram, and one of my friends there who doesn't crochet loved it and wanted one for herself. We had discussed this, then put it on the back burner, and recently discussed again.

I haven't crocheted much in ages, so when we talked colors, I pulled out my stash. I had the most black, so that was the pillow cover color. I love how all the other colors are bright and make it just pop off the pillow.

I rotated rows on the cover it self repeating row A 2 double 1 single crochet then row B 1 single 2 double crochet.



We had agreed I would just send her the cover, and she could purchase a pillow form and then whip stitch the last side closed. But, me being me, I decided to learn how to sew a zipper into 1) crochet and 2) a pillow cover!



I'm pretty proud of this feature!
It will fit a 14" pillow form.

The applique was a pattern by KeepersCottageCrafts on Etsy.

I love the way black makes other colors seem so vibrant. That's why I often use black on my quilts.
