Thank you to all you lovely people who took the time to give me advice regarding the back of my granny square cushion, As this is my first cushion I am going to keep it simple, so I have decided on a large granny square. I am just going to stitch the two sides together and not bother with an opening this time, the recipient will just have to keep it clean!!
I have also made a start on my next project, a ripple blanket, using some of the same colours from the cushion, as the blanket is going to the same person.
I've also had a go at another hat this week, this was supposed to be another slouchy hat but I obviously went very wrong some where along the way, it's more like a beret.
As you can see, I have a new model this week, the lovely Isla-Rose, she wasn't to impressed with having the hat on, she was more interested in watching cbeebies. Lucie was to busy to model today as she had football training and then a ballet class with only 15 minutes inbetween to get changed, clean off the mud, put on a leotard , hair in a bun and then I drive like a lunatic to get her there in time.
I always said I wasn't going to be one of those mums whose life was taken over with after school clubs, but I am afraid to say we only have Friday nights that are club free.
Anyway back to the hat, I love the pattern it's just the size that's not quite right, so I'll give it another go with a different hook and maybe a few more increases to see if that will make it more slouchy. You can find the pattern here.
The back of the hat looks like this...
Hopefully I will be able to show you my completed cushion on my next post. One last question has anybody else had any problems loading photos on to blogger????? Maybe it's my laptop.
