Notes

I used a cross stitch pattern for the front of the pillow. The link to it is in the sidebar. The rest of the pillow was improvised but was pretty straight forward. When I completed the last row if the pillow, I switched colors to what I wanted the back to be and just did repeating rows of sc until the back was the same height as the front. I then crocheted up one side and the top. I then stuffed the pillow with fiber fill and crocheted up the last side. Weave in the ends and then it was done. Very basic. I made 2 of them, as seen in the pictures. They are for my brother-in-law’s, who are both big NES fans. It took me a long time to complete, mostly because I had been so busy over the past several months. If I totalled up the time I spent actually working on it, it probably could have been completed in a few days.
