Crocheted yellow flowers…

Well, I have gone seriously over the top with crocheting flowers, but it’s so therapeutic and I find that travelling to work and home again, listening to a story on my phone and making a few flowers or leaves is bliss…

And so, I found that I had made lots of these yellow flowers.
I had visited IKEA with my sister and bought some of these really nice cushion covers, perfectly plain and just asking to be decorated.

I decided to add a little fabric paint as a base    Cushion with posy of crochet flowers.png  and then started to pile up the yellow flowers, I stuck them with PVA glue so they stayed in place and then stitched them so they will be secure.

I then added a few leaves which I chained a stem to.

And finally, after much deliberation and asking for advice on colour…. I stitched a range of purple buttons in the centres of 19 of the flowers (there are actually over 30 flowers on the cushion).

And that is it, finished and it is for sale in my ETSY shop..
