WARNING: This post may be a little cushion crazy!
My latest, finished crocheted cushion ...
It's inside-out! Had ya there!
After finishing the woven cushion, I decided that I just had to finish the others that were sitting in a basket somewhere, back-less.
It got me thinking about all the different ways one can put together a crocheted cushion. Here are some:
Recycling old sweaters
That is what I've done in that top picture and a method that Lucy outlines here.
I've also used the Neat Ripple Pattern for the rippley front. That was my first ripple attempt.
Another one that had been waiting to be finished ...
The Wool-Eater pattern.
Both have recycled jumpers as backs.
Crocheted back with buttons
I did this for one of the first cushions I crocheted.
Crocheted back without buttons
This is a non-removable cover where the two sides are single-crocheted together.
Stitching the crocheted cover on to a cushion cover (a bit of a cheat!)
Stitching a crocheted cover IN TO a cushion cover
I haven't done this yet. But what I would do is to start by stitching the crocheted piece on to some nice fabric and then use a great tutorial like this to make up a zippered cushion.
I really want to try this one out next. In sha Allah.
Then, with all of the bigger cushions finished off, you can go and make some tiny ones.
Do bear in mind that if you have little girls in your household, those tiny ones will be snatched up as soon as they're off the hooks!
