I’ve had a lot of requests to make a tutorial on how to change colours.  The crochet heart pillow is the perfect project to give an easy demo!  This crochet pattern comes with a step by step video on Youtube.  I’ve been learning how to use iMovie on my mac, so I hope you enjoy the fun intro my kids and I created!  I’m so pumped to reach 20K subscribers on Youtube, so pls subscribe and share my videos!  If you want more FREE tutorials, I need your help!

The Yarn

I made this crochet heart pillow using Bernat Roving.  This yarn is perfectly soft and huggable!  Perfect pillow making yarn.  The main colour (MC) is Putty, and our contrast colour (CC) is in Cherry.   You will also need a 17×17″ pillow form and a 9mm crochet hook.


This is a great beginner project that’s fun for all ages!  I made this pillow for my bed but my kids love it so much they’re actually inspired to make their own! (yes! nailed it!).  I helped my daughter graph out her favourite saying for hers.
