Savor // Love Pillow Giveaway!

Hooray, it's giveaway time! This little heart pillow has brought a lot of joy into our household & while the pattern is free (find it on Ravelry or through this link here), I know not all of you are knitters. And everyone should have this cozy cute pillow in their home! (Did I mention it's also a great neck pillow if you flip it upside down? Adorable AND functional!)

While I love the OG yellow pillow, Grayson mandated that that one is just for him (totally fair, as it was his Valentine's Day gift & the manifestation of my love), so the winner will be able to choose from a few other colors. And luckily this little buddy doesn't weigh much, so I'll ship anywhere in the world.See more info below on how to enter...

Savor // Love Pillow Pattern (free!)

Ah, love! This year Valentine's Day is apparently a highly celebrated holiday in Freesia Fibers land because I decided to do not one, but two cheesy little heart shaped celebrations. First the conversation heart cream cheese sugar cookies, recipe found here, & now the free pattern for this wonderfully cozy heart shaped pillow!

I gifted this pillow to Grayson as a sign of my love, because to be honest I really view my love as a handknit heart shaped yellow pillow. It just makes sense! And now you can make it for the love in your life. Which could deeefinitely be yourself...

Speckle Pillow Pattern & Creative Process

I'm having a lot of fun with home goods. They're remarkably functional, & they allow for knitwear to be enjoyed every day as opposed to a top you can only wear every few days, or a sweater you can only wear half of the year. I've also developed a deep love of 12"x18" pillows, because I've discovered they are just perfect for sticking behind your neck as you sit on the couch. Just the right amount of support!

This design was created specially for my new(ish) home and was honestly a bit of an accident. Grayson & I's home is made up of so many lovely handmade touches; some made by me, some by my mom, & others that we found through various other means (including a really sweet wooden Chicago flag made from reclaimed Chicago wood that we got from UrbanArtChicago - check them out on Etsy here!). Our bedroom is still a bit of a work in progress, but will include a quilt my mom is making us (she is the absolute best), a sewn pillow she originally made my sister but was transferred to me, & some knit pillows made by me (this will eventually all be photographed, don't you worry).

Ombre Brioche Pillow Pattern & Creative Process

I freaking love these pillows. They honestly might be my favorite thing I've ever made. The marriage of the stitch pattern, yarn, & function is just so spot on & they are the coziest, loveliest addition to any room.

I love all of Brooklyn Tweed's yarn, but I especially love Arbor. It's incredibly lofty & springy, & the color palette (based heavily on major artists, I might add) is exceptional. They have an impressive array of very chromatic neutrals, which was perfect for this project as it was again for my sister, who, as you can see from the Erin Crop Top, is a big fan of neutrals (pattern found here, finished goods found here).

Erin recently moved cross country, & in addition to her graduation present being a specially designed top, her birthday present was a set of pillows for her new apartment (I know, she gets spoiled with knitwear). I was able to design these pillows while on our family vacation in Banff, Canada, which meant that she could approve every step along the way.
