Sunshine Crochet Pillow Case – Free  Pattern.

Sunshine Crochet Pillow Case – Free Pattern.

Hey Everyone, Am so glad am here sharing this beginner friendly crochet pillow case pattern with you! I had a very tough week but its easy to face the dark when we remember that its the path leading us into a beautiful morning when the sun will shine again! And here comes this pattern to add some positive vibes to a place that may needs a little more sunshine!

I honestly like the mix of the velvet yarn and the texture added by the back side of the single crochet stitch. It makes it look like those trendy woven pompom pillows!


If you don’t already know let me give you some background!

This pattern is part of bigger project that I have been preparing for a while. I am doing a room makeover on a budget using mainly crochet and some other DIYs!! I’am a big believer that our surrounding space affect our mood and productivity levels and I find my self more productive and happy when I have a place that is organized and looks pretty.

Also my room is the space where I work on my blog, sit down and chill, study, and even workout!! so basically If I don’t have a pilates class to teach or a family commitment I’ll be in my room (coz am an extremely introverted human being and I like it) :D. Hence I always want to add new things to my room, make it prettier and more functional that’s why I have created this room makeover series!!

Assembly and finishing:

Now lay down your two pieces. For variation I wanted my pillow to have slightly different looking sides. So I put my lower piece with the “wrong side” of the stitch upwards. which by the way does not look wring at all its just perfect!! and the upper piece again. I put it in the same way so that you have one wrong side facing one right side.

Now is the time to assemble both sides together as you see in the video bellow. And add your pompoms too!

Notes on the video:

  • Single crochet both sides together till you have an opening big enough to insert your pillow.
  • Then continue the same way till you finish assembling the two parts together.
  • make sure to leave a long tail in the pompom to be able to tie it to the pillow as you see in the video.

Here is another video that includes how to make pompoms if you want some extra details.

I hope you liked this pattern. If you made one, share it with me on Instagram. I would love to see how you adapted it and what variations you made 🙂

Take care and happy crocheting.
