It’s been a long time since my last post. I didn’t neglect my blog on purpose. I just was so busy. Busy making my first pdf pattern and tutorial. There were so many things I had to do and learn. Take and process photos, learn how to write pattern in Word, write the pattern, check out and test the pattern…
And finally, my very first pdf pattern for this flowery granny square cushion is finished and available in Dada’s place shop (payment options: credit card and Pay Pal)
The tutorial is very detailed (it is written on 18 pages with more then 100 photographs!)and I think that even beginners can use it.
This step by step tutorial includes instruction on how to:
* make a granny square
* join granny squares
* make a border
* make an inner cushion
* make a cushion case
This pattern is written in standard American crochet terms.
I want to thank my friend Sandra for reviewing this tutorial. Sandra is an English teacher and my dear friend. So, Sandra, hvala ti do neba! (thank you so much!)
These are my newest granny squares. I’m currently working on the pattern and tutorial (step-by-step with many pictures)
Actually, I’m making a tutorial for the pillow. I will explain how to make a granny square, how to join them, how to make a border, and finally, how to make a pillow.
I will show how to add fabric (with an inserted zipper) on the back side. It will be very, very detailed tutorial. And hope It will be in my Etsy shop soon.
I’ve just finished this pillow. The pattern is my own design. Very similar to the granny square I use for the Little flower baby blanket from my previous post. This grannie is a little smaller.
This is the back side of the pillow. I never crochet it. I always add a fabric with a zipper. Looks nice and save my time (which I may spend crocheting…)
I used my trusty 100% cotton “Tango” yarn (manufacturer: St. George), and for the petals I used purple-blue “Una” yarn (also from St. George) It’s 50% acrylic, 45% cotton and 5% metalized polyester.
I’ve already started my next crochet project, which I’m very excited about. Something new, I’ve never made before, colorful and happy…
