Blooming Flower Cushion

I wanted to make a cushion to match the mandala blanket I made, colourwise anyway. I came across this free pattern to download on facebook and thought it looked very effective.

The pattern was easy enough so why did I struggle with it to start with? I kept either losing a stitch or gaining one on each round and had no idea how.

So I made a few notes on the pattern, started again and it was a breeze and flowed like a flower in a sunny afternoon breeze. It was so therapeutic to make up that I had to stop myself continuing round and round and round. I had to think about stuffing it that’s the only reason I stopped (TeeHee)

The back was very simply rounds in the same colours to match the back of the front (make sense? good!) using the same increasing rows to keep the size consistent.

I’m just loving these seasonal colours at the minute they feel so warm and cosy. Once I’d finished it I found myself sat with it on my knee stroking my hands over the petals it feels amazing. It would make a great 3D blanket which is something I may have to consider at some point, as well as many more cushions as I can in different colours scattered throughout the house.

Ahhhh so many things to make and very little time it seems again, loving having my crojo back and sharing with you lovely lot again.

Beach Combing Cushion

Remember the blanket I did in lockdown? The Beach Combing Blanket CAL from the amazing Coastal Crochet?

Well I had lots of cotton yarn left so I decided to do a matching cushion to sit alongside the blanket on my bed.

I did a simple C2C backing for the cushion and lined it with a old pillow case then stuffed it with fibre fill.

I decided to add a scalloped edging, regretted it once I started but glad I persevered with it.

I picked my favourite square from the whole blanket and and to juggle the colours around a bit but very happy with the outcome.

Thank you for reading
