I didn't realise what a challenge this would be. It was fine making the granny squares - although please note I am still a very beginner crocheter! The trouble I had was working out how to convert it into a pillow! I had three attempts, all slightly different, and then settled on treating the crochet part like any other piece of fabric - and I'm really happy with the results. So today I gave Paula her Birthday presents....
But what would a birthday present be if you know what you are getting, so I made another cushion from my thrifted linen finds the other week and was delighted when I found a little side plate in the Johnson range that Paula collects at an op shop in the country. I did make a little crochet trivet/hot pot holder thingy, but didn't remember to photograph it!
How nice it feels to give handmade and thrifted items....xx
Happy Birthday Pod xx
