My grandmother made these. They were so scratchy and uncomfortable to the skin to lie on.-) as the baby I was always the one who got the "ugly, dusty" pillow as they collect dust easily. But I still smile looking at this.
Finally found a video tutorial for how to crochet an African Flower hexagon (kinda like a granny square). I tried to do this myself with a pattern, but it turned out to make a circle lol AFRICAN FLOWER
