Colourful Cushion Cover

Still working from my never ending stash, I have been working on this cushion cover for the past week.


As you can see one side is a giant granny square – slightly wonky, not sure what went wrong, probably due to having to re attach new colours on every row.  If anyone has any pointers concerning this problem, please let me know. 


The other side is done with the diagonal box stitch.  I love this stitch as it gives you a lovely dense texture and fairly rips along once you get the hang of it.


The edging was a sort of shell pattern by slip stitching x 2 followed by hdc, dc, hdc all the way round. I cheated and didn’t do a removeable cover, as I can easily undo one side if laundering is needed.


  1. Hi, love your cushion cover, very jolly. I showed DH and asked what he thought, he likes it too. We have some very tatty patchwork cushion covers that I made a very long time ago; do you have a pattern for the diagonal pattern? I reckon this would bust some stash and cheer up my sofa all in one!

  2. I love the cushion, and the wonkyness adds to its charm. The back is lovely, looks very snugglable! :)

  3. Great cushion, I love the colors!

  4. The cushion is gorgeous, beautiful colours.


I love to hear from you!
