I recently made a present for someone who was leaving work. Over the last couple of years I’ve been asked to make a number of daisy themed things for work and it felt right to combine a daisy theme with this persons favourite colour, pink.
I’d previously used a pattern by Bautawitch to create hearts with daisies inside a granny square.
They were gifts for visitors from America so I picked the red, white and blue theme to symbolise the colours of both our countries flags.
It was a simple quick make so I decided to return to the same pattern and create a combination of lots of shades of pink for a cushion cover.
I used up oddments of pink that I had left over but also bought some Scheepjes Cotton 8. The whole cushion is cotton and made with a 2.5mm hook.
I made 36 squares before assembling altogether in a random order. I got a cushion from Matalan and sewed the panel in place on the front.
I was really pleased with the final piece and it was well received when I handed it over last week.
