Crochet Christmas Pillow Decor
The gingerbread crochet pillow is part of a set of 4 Christmas pillows that I made. Make the ones you like the most or all four! These are great heirloom pillows that you can take out each year for the holidays and hand down to future generations.
For the entire Christmas pillow set, I got the 4 pack of 14″ x 14″ pillows off of Amazon so if you’re planning on making all of them, I recommend snagging a pack!
