Supernatural Pillow!

It's Arts and Crafts time!  I have finished making my first Supernatural pillow! I designed the crochet pattern myself. (It still needs a few tweaks, but it's just nitpicky stuff, because I think the pillow looks pretty damn good the way it is.)

I don't have a working camera at the moment, so you'll have to settle for cellphone pics...but check it out:

It measures 13"x13" (and I didn't even do that on purpose.)


ETA: This pattern is no longer available for free. If you would like to purchase the pattern for ridiculously cheap, please go to my etsy page here: KalixaDesigns


On an only slightly unrelated note. I think my plant named Dean is actually both Dean AND Sam...judging by the two distinct stems:

I think I will just rename him/them to Winchester. I desperately need to get Winchester a new pot. (As you can see, the starter pot he is currently in is broken and held together by packing tape).

The pillow's awesome. I love the blue and white.

Thanks! It's actually blue and very-light blue, but my cellphone isn't great at picking up colour subtleties ;)

Ooh, awesome! Any chance I could get the pattern? I wouldn't mind making that...

Sure. I gotta make some corrections to it first. I've made them to my hard copy, but not my digital copy. I'll try to do that either tonight or tomorrow, and then I'll email it to you.

if you will have an opportunity to keep both plants in the same pot, they probably will feel better (we all know what happens when dean&sam are separeted!) so... like that one? http://i01.i.aliimg.com/photo/v0/103233095/Plant_pot_long.jpg or http://www.hiwtc.com/photo/products/22/04/51/45125.jpg?

Good idea. I'll take a wander to some plant stores one of these days and see what I can find. I'm worried about separating them too, since I was so certain when they/it was little that it was only one plant - I think they're roots might be too intertwined.

why was my comment been called spam?!

I think because it had a link in it. Never fear! I will fix it!

do you possibly know if I can get a similar pillow pattern for knitting? I don't know how to crochet, but I'd love a pillow like it.

I don't know enough about knitting patterns to say...I made the crochet pattern myself, so I guess if you know how to make knitting patterns, then you could do the same!

Sorry I'm not more help!

That cushion is brilliant!!!! You would def have a market if you wanted to sell them....

Apr. 14th, 2012 02:57 am (UTC)
Yeah...I'm thinking of looking into it. I love making them, and it'd be extra money that I could put towards stuff like Supernatural conventions ;)

I need to find out how etsy or paypal or whatever works...

I really like your SPN pillow! How long did it take you to finish it?
Your little blurb about Winchester really made me smile, especially in combination with the pic. :)

Thanks! I'm glad I made you smile. :)

The pillow took me about a month to make...mainly, because I only worked on it for an hour or so most evenings.

That is a super awesome pillow. Fantastic job at that. I would also love to have a copy of your pattern.

And you definitely need to keep Dean and Sam together. Good luck on the replanting. They should be okay with the replant.

Thanks! I think I still have your email address somewhere, so I'll email you the pattern.

I bought a new plant for my Winchesters yesterday! I haven't repotted them yet, but I have a feeling they're going to love it. They've grown very fast and strong in the little pot.

Would you still be willing to email out that anti-possession pattern? Pretty please? futurecas2@gmail.com If not, you are still cool.
