Crochet Valentine’s Pompom Heart Pillow

Time to start thinking about hearts and love!  Valentine’s Day is just around the corner so lets get hooking up a fun project! Pillows are life right? Who doesn’t love a cozy pillow.  We just love to pile the pillows on the beds in my house. So this project is perfect for my family and I hope you’ll love it too!

By the way the gorgeous pompom lights I purchased on clearance at Indigo.  You could totally make your own or rush in and check out the Christmas clearance sale!

I’ve had a lot of requests to make a tutorial on how to change colours.  This is the perfect project to give an easy demo!  This pattern comes with a full 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!

I made this 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 (watch for that pattern soon!).
