Floral Cushion

I am so happy that I have at last finished my floral cushion .

Crochet Floral Cushion

The pattern does show how to join them as you go but I could not decide on a colour sequence, so I just used to make them in between other things and when I was on the go. It was just easier toΒ  make one and drop it into the collection.

Once I decided they would become a cushion cover and I started pinning them onto a cushion to guide me on the colours required.

Then the joining process began, it did not take long for me to realize the error in my method.Β It has taken an absolute age to join all these little flowers together although I have to admit that it is totally my own folly.

For the back I made two squares and an oblong using multi coloured stripes.

Crochet Floral Cushion Back

Using the oblong to overlap and held together with 5 different coloured buttons.

I totally love this pattern by. I will definitely use it again, only this time I will follow ALL of the instructions and join as I go.

The pattern by Adi Keren for these lovely flowers can be found here.

    I have really been wanting to do a pillow cover for quite some time now. Your flowers are gorgeous, but I especially like the back. I love stripes.

      Thank you, I love stripes too. They are so fun to do, you just keep going with a colour until you feel the need to change.

      Thank you, I have to admit I am proud of myself foe persevering as it was a challenge at times. I dread to tell you that it has taken about 5 months to get it finished as I kept putting it down.

    The cushion is so cute! I have to check out the pattern. A join as you go system would work well for this.

    I really love this pattern, front and back are both lovely. The flowers look very tactile, great for twiddling while curled up on the sofa! πŸ™‚

    That is such a fun and cheerful pillow! I can only imagine trying to join all those flowers… I get bored trying to join together parts of amigurumi animals. I might try this pattern though…

    What a great idea! I have pillows that need re-covering and I was going to sew-up something. Now I think I’ll crochet a cover for them. Love the colors in your pillows. Thanks for sharing the idea

      Well if you do I would look forward to seeing it too. But be warned, join the flowers as you go along and don’t make the same mistake that I did.
