I loved making pom-pom flowers for Valentine’s Day, but I didn’t realize how much yarn I would have leftover when I finished. One of my resolutions this year is to use the supplies I have whenever I can, rather than buying new. I already have two 6′-high bookshelves stuffed with yarn and I’m afraid if I don’t start to whittle down my stash I’m going to find myself on an episode of Hoarders (and I really don’t want to be known as “the crazy yarn lady”).
I knew I wanted to make something small and have been obsessed with the chevron pattern lately, so I decided to make a 16×16 pillow cover. I only used the cherry red and white yarns, but I figure depleting 2/3 of my V-day stash is better than nothing, right?
