Still working on that star tutorial…I will get there. I’m fairly happy with the pattern – just not HAPPY happy with it.
Anyway, in the meantime I get to share this with you as the wedding that it was made for happened this weekend.
The image was taken from the happy couple’s wedding stationery and I found some fabulous cotton that can be used in an inkjet printer – ingenious! You’ve probably seen it before but I never had.
This was the second attempt. The first one I used a different way to join the crochet to the fabric and if I’m honest that method was better but I mucked up the crochet and it turned out a bit wonky.
For this second cushion I made a crochet frame for the fabric and stitched it on top. If I could do it again I’d have stuck with my original method however, that’s the thing with craft and new products – there’s always a bit of trial and error and sometimes you just have to go with it otherwise you’d never produce anything.
The customer and the newlyweds were happy with their cushion so that’s made me happy. They also had a Mr & Mrs cushion too.
Have you ever stepped out of your crochet comfort zone? How did it turn out?
