My Mandala CAL Finish!

mandala CAL

I've finished my mandala I was making for the Mandala CAL! I am really happy that I took part in this one, I've been eyeing up the overlay mandalas for such a long time now. It looks complicated but it actually is super easy to crochet, it's just a lot of fpdc (& fpdtr) stitches and the end product is so beautiful! I enjoyed every stitch of this beauty. I really want to try this overlay mandala next, much more work but it's gorgeous!


After finishing the mandala, I really didn't know what I would do with it! I quickly decided to turn it into a pillow, so I crocheted a striped back for it. I then sewed the corners in on a big throw pillow (I don't remember the size, I bought it last year & ripped the tag off!) and I shoved it inside. I whip stitched the two sides together and got one big mandala pillow!

She is a firm pillow and I know it's not going to go flat anytime soon! I am so in love with this pillow, it's now living happily on my new couch. And hopefully, my kids will not claim it as theirs anytime soon.

  1. Wow it is beautiful! I'm inspired to participate next time.
    Good luck keeping it away from the kids;)
