A Cushion for Big Sister

Big Sister chose the colours she wanted


Stylecraft Special DK: Bright Pink, Magenta, Lavender, Soft Peach, & Sunshine.

We found a cushion, no longer in use, to cover.IMG_0654


I got busy with the ripples.


To make a neat seam, I did a row of single crochet along each sidebig S6a bigs1

And then sewed up using mattress stitch, worked from the right side. bigS4

I was lucky to find some sweet heart-shaped buttons with flowers on them in just the right coloursIMG_0670 (1)

And Big Sister was delighted to have a new cushion for her bedroomBigS7 IMG_0675

Coming downstairs I noticed the shoes in the hall and couldn’t resist a photo … my son and his girls …. aaaah …

    • Oooo glad you like it, Big Sister chose the colours, but her Mum did not want too much yellow, so I snuck in a stripe – I love making the little ones’ ideas and colour choices come to life. The buttons were a real lucky find, in a tiny shop just down the road from where they live in London.
