Crochet a Pin Cushion...


Our current challenge over on the  Let's Craft and Create Blog is Anything but a Card!  

I've crocheted a pin cushion. The motif  I've used for the design is called 'African Flower' an internet search will give you various patterns and tutorials, but the one I used is  HERE.
The yarn is  4ply mercerised cotton from knitshop.co.uk there's some gorgeous bright and zingy colours in the range.  I've used Pastel Pink, Rose Pink, Leaf Green and Silver.

Check out the Let's Craft and Create blog to see some fabulous projects from the rest of the team and the prize on offer for one lucky entry.  Don't forget you've got two weeks to enter.

    1. Yes I found it pretty easy and I'm still a beginner. Just make two of the hexagon motifs and join them together with a double crochet or single crochet (US). I made make the inner cushion with some calico and polyester wadding.

  8. Love your pin cushion - lovely colours and so neat! My problem is getting things to come out the right size (I am remembering the ten little mary jane boottees I tried last year, every one was destined for the bin) I must try again! Mary G x
