Frilly Mum – Pillow Art
This easy to crochet pillow makes a bold statement with the oversized Mum and abstract pattern. Create it your way: add more or less abstract pattern, or use the mum only. Simply let your creativity flow. Pillow shown is 14 x 14” (35.5 x 35.5). If you want the Mum to fill up more of the pillow space, use a smaller pillow size of your choice.
