Another Cushion Cover Project Finished

You may remember that I had some squares left over from making a blanket for my lovely Miss L and I decided to use them to make a cushion.

Well here it is.

Patchwork CushionAnd as I still had a few squares to use I worked them in along with the stripes for the back.

Stripy Back

I originally started this project a few weeks ago when I discovered the Apache Tears pattern by Sara London which ended up being a cushion in it’s own right. It made sense to make them into a pair so the stripy back matches the apache tears cushion.

And to keep the pairing I used a similar pattern to make the flower buttons.

Flower Buttons Flower Botton HolesAnd finished with a simple edging.

I am very happy with how this pair work together.

      Thank you, they are so soft too just as you want a cushion to be, Debbie Bliss yarns are just lovely to work with.

      Thank you, so pleased to have used up most of the remaining yarn left over from the blanket. Although I am thinking there may be enough for another one too.

      The flowers squares are one of my favourites, It took a while but I think I have a pattern I am happy with and will use again, I did a tutorial for it if it is of interest to you.

    they are gorgeous. I was wondering how you closed it ….and soon saw the reverse stripy side !! the flower buttons are cool. I made a couple of cushion covers too last week but yours are striking 🙂

      We are all at it with the making cushions at the moment, thinking of the dark nights spent snuggled up on the sofa maybe?
