Two of my favourite things

After making my last pin cushion, I couldn’t help but think that I really do have room for a whole nest of pin cushions.

This design has been swirling in my mind for a little time now, but I’ve had other things to finish first. I wanted to combine granny squares, easily my favourite thing, with pin cushions.

She is made from Rowan 4ply Cotton Yarn, using a 3mm hook.

I made the flower up myself. I’m not sure, do you like it?

Cushion_7sml

I guess maybe it would work without a flower too, but really, any excuse to add some buttons!

Cushion_3sml

When it was time to stuff her, I realised we had a problem. Granny squares do tend to allow for that age old problem, stuffing-ooze. So, a little cotton undergarment was in order.

I hope you like her 🙂
