Well, I have now finished my cushion and am ready for the unveiling. What do you think? This is the front of the cushion. I have crocheted granny squares around a central flower motif and used the join as you go method to join the squares together. I used Stylecraft double knitting wool as they have so many colours to choose from and it is so soft - it is lovely to use.
This is the back of the cushion, which I have completed in Tunisian Crochet. The back is in two parts, so that the cushion pad can be removed. It is held together by six pink buttons.
What is it about buttons. I can't resist them. When I was a child I loved to play with my mum's button tin. My children were the same. If you think about it, they are quite educational; colour sorting, counting, matching. Anyway I think the buttons really finish it off nicely, so it can be reversed for a different look.
I am now on to my next cushion, more of which later.
