Stashbuster #6: Blooming Flower Cushion

 I finished my Blooming Flower Cushion. I had too much fun making this! I started it Tuesday night, did most of the crocheting yesterday, and stuffed it and slip stitched the pieces together this morning. This is the front.

And this is the back.
I forgot yesterday to tell you what colors I used: Plum Pudding, Shaded Dusk, and Green Tones, all Red Heart Super Saver. They're 5 oz. skeins, and I used about 50% of the blue and green and 75% of the purple with an I hook. I didn't have a pillow form so I used fiber fill for stuffing.

Hope wants one (or two) for her room now. Her birthday is in April so I have some time to get the right colors (dark purple, teal, lime green and white) to match her room and make a set.

Thanks for reading!
Blessings :-)

I can see my dog doing this to the baby in a few months!

    1. Thanks :-) Me neither! Thought it would take me a few more days at least.

    1. Thanks :-) Not normally, no; I'm usually a snail crocheter. I can't believe this worked up so fast.
