Cushions

I have booked another craft fair with Hellys for March and I have added another cushion to my collection this time made with scraps of colour. I liked the pattern of Granny's Paperweights on Janine's blog last week and decided to make a few for a cushion. I used acrylic yarn it's what I have mostly, with a few balls of coloured mohair and some fancy polyester mix yarns. I started joining the Granny Paperweights together with a single crochet which I usually use to join crochet then thought I'd try stitching them together using one colour throughout which worked very well. I thought I'd add a crinkly cotton material for the back which I hand dyed with a turmeric spice. I may have to crochet a few more to fit the material as they are a hexagon shape.
