Brick By Brick Pillow Crochet Pattern

Brick By Brick Pillow Crochet Pattern

After I designed the Brick by Brick Blanket, I knew I wanted to have a coordinating pillow.  Pillows are a great way to add personal design elements to a nursery, bedroom or living room.  The Brick by Brick Pillow is perfect to customize for that adorable newborn sleepy photo prop or to give as a gift.  Same with the Brick by Brick Blanket, I used 3 different colors to create the “bricks” for the pillow.  The only difference between the two is that for the blanket, I used grey as the solid color and with the pillow I used a white shade for the solid color.  Even though the two solid colors are different, they coordinate together.
