So E told me that she wanted Granny Squares with flowers on them, and there had to be big and small flowers. She wanted a big flower that was pink in the middle with blue petals because they are her favourite colours. I found a pattern on Ravelry ……
She asked me to write the colours she wanted, down on a piece of paper, so that I wouldn’t forget: pink, blue, red and orange and purple.
And – and this is genius – she wanted a pocket on the back of the cushion to put some special things in.
So here is the front of the cushion:
I was careful to check out each step with her – we arranged the squares and before I appliquéd the small flowers on I showed them to her and how it would look. It was a wonderful process to see her consider each decision and for her to have an input at each stage.
We decided on a pretty edging:
from ‘Happy Hooker’ which is brilliant, with easy to follow instructions.
I love that E, is so sure of herself and her ideas and it is a real privilege to be able to bring them to life for her……
Next post … the pocket!
