Crochet Rainbow Pillow: Retro Rainbow with Cumulus Clouds Pillow

I’m delighted to share a crochet rainbow pillow pattern today. It will brighten up any room, and I’ve included a pattern for cumulus clouds, too!

This project is sponsored by Fairfield World, but all opinions and thoughts are my own. Additional materials for this project were generously provided by Furls and Lion Brand.

This crochet rainbow pillow has been on my mind for a few months, but once I got my idea together, I was able to stitch it together in an afternoon! It starts with two rainbow panels.

Then, you’ll add your cumulus clouds. I made three, but you can make more if you’d like!

Once you add the cumulus clouds to your panel, you’ll seam the panels together.

Finally, you’ll add a puffy cloud border at the top.

Finally, you’ll insert a cushy and cozy Fairfield Poly-Fil Premier Ultra Plush Pillow Insert inside.

Et voilà, you have a great accent for any room! Customize your version with pastel, bright, or jewel toned rainbow colors.
