My 1st Crocheted Cushion Cover

I've been trying to make crocheted granny squares since about 2 weeks ago for the purpose of making a cushion cover out of them, i'm glad it's finished though it's not perfect as i still need to learn on my tension so the square is tight and not loose, but i'm happy with the result :P

I made about 50 little granny squares and it turned out not enough and so I improvised by doing treble crochet at the back to join the piece and added buttons, I use envelope style cushion coz it's easier to put the cushion inside the cover :)

I always have problem joining the squares and need to learn more on how to do it correctly but i still love the result :)

I must say I deserve a cup of tea :P

  1. Wow thats so pretty i would love to be able to make something like that but cant for the life of me figure out crochet lol

  2. I like!! I really like! I think it looks great Susan..love the colours you have chosen :) I like the back bit as well..with the grey and the buttons. I am jealous..

  3. Wow, Susan, it's beautiful. What a brilliant first attempt. I really like the colours and the grey backing looks divine. Clever you!

  4. Excellent job Susan it looks fantastic! also loving your crochet flowers and the jug they are in :) you have some beautiful pieces in your home :) hope you are having a wonderful week sweetie

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!

  5. OH you should be proud of yorself, it is adorable! I too, have been (re)learning how to do granny squares. I have about 30 or so done. I hope my afghan turns out as good as your pillow! (I can't remember anything about how to join them, lol!) I love the colors you used, as well as your genius fix on the back. The treble stitch works so well and the buttons look fab! I actually think your design is better than if it had been big enough to go all the way around. Well done! You do deserve a cuppa, and some dessert!
    Your tea mug is totally sweet too!

  6. It's beautiful, Susan! Love your creativity! I hope you have a glorious day.
    Hugs, Beth

  7. Susan, you did an outstanding job with your squares and finished cushion. I love granny squares and I keep saying that I'm going to start a granny square project...I think you just inspired me to get going. Thanks for sharing, enjoy your tea :-)



  8. A delightfully pretty pillow, Susan...I, too, love your ingenuity with the back. The buttons add a nice touch, too. You certainly do deserve a cup of tea.

    Joining squares is not hard...if you look at the square from the side angle you will notice a heart shaped double yarn. You will put the needle through the back loop, and continue whip stitching the back loops of the square sides. Does that make sense? Just make sure you are consistent with how many loops you go through on each stitch.

    I love how you're progressing. I've never done crocheted flowers before so I really admire yours.

  9. My goodness Susan, that's gorgeous! You most certainly do deserve a big cup of tea after that! I wouldn't even know where to begin when it comes to crochet...cross stitch yes but not crochet or knitting.

    Great job!!!

  10. It is so pretty. Quite a talent there.

  11. Wow susan - great job! You are the craft queen you really are - is there anything you are rubbish at? ;o) Big Love Scarlett x

  12. Well, Susan, you sure have made a cute pillow! I never learned to crochet and always wanted to, so you should be proud of your achievement! What a wonderful idea to put the buttons on the back and it's so much more creative and fun that way! I agree with Terri, you deserve a cup of tea and dessert for your effort! Such a cute teacup too and it matches your pillow perfectly. One would think you did that on purpose! :) Thanks for joining me for tea today and Happy Spring!


  13. GREAT pillow, Susan! ANd your cup is so cheery. Happy Spring~ I am having a teatime giveaway...hope you visit. :)

  14. Very creative, love the flowers in the vase.

  15. Susan,
    You're amazing, ya know that? Your pillow looks beautiful. My sister crochets and knits. I love all these spring colors.

  16. I love your cushion, it is fab! I love the grey crocheted strip with the buttons - really finishes it off! Well done x

  17. It's beautiful Susan, very Spring-y. You're going to have a fully crocheted home in no time! I can't believe you only learned last year.
