I haven’t long been crocheting but now I’ve learned I really love it. The fact that it is so portable means I can crochet on the bus or train travelling to work, actually .
I started making these little flowers after watching a tutorial on YouTube. There are so many people out there showing you how to crochet flowers and leaves, try a few before you settle on one way, people crochet in different ways, the UK and USA have different names for stitches too.
I have purchased some plain cushion covers and napkins recently and made a couple of sets of napkins and some decorated cushion covers using my crocheted pieces.
Here’s one of my cushions:-
I had a few ‘granny’ squares in my craft cupboard and decided that I could use these as little backings for my flowers.
So as you can see in this picture, I sewed a crochet leave on the green square, and then a flower on top and finished it off with a pretty button in the middle.
I did three of these squares
Once I had the three squares ready, I placed them on an off white cushion cover and sewed them in place.
That’s it, all done. Here it is in situ on my garden chair…
