Tunisian Crochet Pillow

As I was roaming through Goodwill a couple months ago, I ran into this book for $1.99 with various crochet projects.  If you crochet, you know that $1.99 is a KILLER deal for crochet books, they're expensive!  The book is called "How to Crochet" by Pauline Turner.

Within the book, I saw this Tunisian Crochet flower pillow pattern, super cute!  I had never done Tunisian Crochet so I decided to try something new and give it a shot.  Here's how it came out!

Not too shabby if I say so myself :-)  This project definitely took considerably longer to do than any of my other crochet projects!  I guess it was because Tunisian was new to me and also because (no offense Pauline) her instructions were so confusing!!  I must have done the first petal over about 8 times before FINALLY understanding what she was trying to say... geez... oh well now it's done and I'm a pro at Tunisian :-)

In the book, it says to create two of these, one for the front and another for the back but since this one took me so long, I think I'm just going to stuff it and sew a fabric backing onto it and call it a day :-)

Anyone else attempt this project?
