Peacock fail

I finished my latest crochet project yesterday and I'm pissed! I used the correct yarn and hooks but it made up too small and I have 40 motifs left over! The pattern says it's supposed to be 43x56", but it only made up to 32x39"! I couldn't lay the 'feathers' as instructed and had to 'wing' it! No pun intended!

I guess I could use the leftover motifs for a pillow. Any ideas?

It's not a total fail, Charlotte, as the afghan you made is gorgeous!! And yes, I think a pillow with the leftovers is a great idea. :)
