My original plan was to make one crochet cushion, a blooming flower one for my bedroom. After making them for my mum and mum-in-law for Mother’s Day, I thought how nice one would look on my bed.
You can see my post about starting it and my colour inspiration here. Before finishing it, I decided to start a second cushion in the same colours as I was so in love with them. I took this on holiday to start. I thoroughly enjoyed making this one and was finished in no time at all. Here’s my post about it.
All the while, my original cushion was sat there feeling all lonely and neglected. If I’m honest, I’d kinda got bored of it and kept finding other projects to work on instead. I already had a third cushion all planned out in my head but guilt got the better of me and I put all my efforts into finishing the blooming thing. It really didn’t take that long once I’d set my mind to it.
Doesn’t it look lovely and plump?
Three very different cushions using the same colours, but I think it works. I have to say though, I prefer the two I didn’t originally plan on making! Don’t think I’ll be doing any more blooming flowers anytime soon. Now these are done, it’s time to focus on my Christmas gift making.
