Granny Cushion

I had a few granny squares lying around from when I was first learning to crochet them. Not enough to make up into a blanket or anything like that and not enough wool to make more that would match. 

They have languished unloved and forgotten on a shelf in my craft cupboard for far too long. I needed to do something with them, so I came up with this...

I joined up 9 of the squares, and used some pieces from an old purple curtain to line and back it with, et voila a cushion cover. but it needed ... something?

I couldn't resist trying out the little flower pattern from a recent issue of Mollie Makes, so I embellished it with two little crocheted flowers.

What do you think?

  1. I really like it. I just wish I could crochet

  2. Cute... I often use bits of left over wool to make granny squares or motifs of some sort, and then join them into a cushion or pram cover, depending on how many I have.

  3. I love seeing them made into cushions, really nice.

  4. I love your crochet cushion, I bet our kitties would enjoy them too. x

  5. I think it looks lovely.

  6. I love it. The best projects are often made up of lost and forgotten creations x

    p.s The new issue of Mollie Makes got delivered to me today, it sure was a wonderful surprise when I got home. I have so much love for that magazine right now.

  7. It's beautiful I love crochet cushions, it would have been such a shame not have used those squares after all of that hard work!
