Et voilà!

Here is the finished creation.  The cushion is a mixture of acrylic and wool and is backed in a cotton vintage rose fabric with ribbon tie closures.  It's 23cm x 23cm, a cute size for a child's chair (if we actually had one).

Front:

Back:

As I have mentioned in my earlier post, I was very unprepared for how long this project would take, even though I did get faster at making the flower blocks.

I bought far too much yarn so there will be more crochet projects in the pipeline to use up the remaining balls.

The pattern can be found at Rosehip.  There's lots of loveliness on her blog, my cushion looks like the clumsy cousin in comparison.  Do you like my alliteration?

Degree of difficulty:  Definitely not easy for a beginner crocheter (even if the pattern says otherwise)
Time taken: 10 days
Result: Small but averagely formed - if you squint your eyes and look at it from a distance, it's passable.

    1. Hi Angelique, I just had a look at your blog - your crochet work is truly impressive! Seeing that makes me realise I still have a really long way to go with my stitch work.
