For all the craft fans out there, here’s a crochet pattern for an incredibly large button pillow! ^^

This pattern is perfect for you if crafts are the only thing you can think of during the day. And for everyone else, of course. :) It looks really nice and cozy on a couch or in a lounge chair. Or use it as a cat pillow!

The holes in the pillow go all the way through the button, so you can even add some “yarn” to the button, as seen on the pictures.
