I know, no-one should be confused by a cushion, should they?
I thought it would all be rather simple.
But I'm having a devil-of-a-time trying to sew up this thing! Well, not sew it up, per se, but:
a) work out how big to make it! You want it to be firm and snug - not floppy and ripply - but it also has to actually fit over the insert
b) get both sides the same size!
Problem "b" is proving quite difficult because the front and the back are quite different. The front is made up of granny squares... here it is... I mentioned it in another post, here.
And the back is (mostly) a solid granny... it's the one that I made from the Charity Daisy that I wrote about here.
I know I should have blocked them. It would have made everything clearer. But I thought - since it would all be stretching over a pillow eventually, anyway - that I could get away without doing it.
So I just tugged and pulled at them a bit, lay them flat on top of each other... thought to myself: yeah, that looks about right...
And then I started sewing them up... and this happened:
Hmmm.... so... back to enlarging the daisy side.
And then we can try again.
I'll let you know how I get on.
P.S. I still don't know how to solve problem "a". I'm just hoping it will somehow magically be the perfect fit?
P.P.S. Can any more experienced, wiser crochet-ers help me out with any of this?? Would love to hear from you if you have any advice (or even if you don't - comments are always welcome :-) !).
