My crochet cushion Tah Dah.....



On these chilly winter nights, in spare moments and at various footy  ovals around the district I have been happily hooking away at my first crochet cushion.




I am happy to say that last night I tucked a cushion inside her.



And crochetted her up so she is all neat and tidy.





Now I just have to decide where she will live.

At the moment, I keep carting her around with me.
If you are into crochet then you might like to know, the pattern for the front is from Attic24, Summer Garden flower squares. The hook is 3.5m and the wool is scraps of 8 ply wool.

  4. Fantastic Deb. You are very clever. I never finish anything I start crocheting and I have a drawer full of unfinished projects. You are inspiring me to open it and do some! I like the cushion colours too. Mx

    1. This might sound odd but I love to crochet, I don't always like the look of it. That is why I chose the bright colours.

    1. Yes you could, anyone who has the patience to renovate furniture must have. Painting the chairs is taking forever, especially in this wet weather.

  13. I love the colours of your cushion. Granny squares are just so much fun to make. What stitch did you use to join your two parts together? I made my first crochet cushion this week to, it must have something to do with this cold winter we are having!

  17. This is such a modern take on the old fashioned (sometimes ugly!) crochet square. Very very cute!
