hello, nice to see you again!
last week i worked on a cushion cover for my mother.
mid-june is her birthday (she becomes 82 years) and i want to give her a personal gift.
this is the result.
there is a problem with it and maybe you can help me, but first i will tell you more about the cover.
years ago i was practicing with crocheting and i tried all kinds of patterns, a part of it, i have showed you in this blog post: testing
i kept everything because i thought i could use it for creating something else. if you look at the top and the fourth picture on that page, you probably recognize the squares that are now the centers of the new cover.
with the different colors i have crocheted intuitively, one side with more variety of stitches and the other simpler with almost only double crochets.
and i have sewn an inside cover made of a fabric with soft colored stripes.
i have separately blocked the two sides but the problem is that – now front and back are attached to each other – the squares on both sides are off balance, i do not get the lines straight. i see this more often on photos of others and i must admit i’m not a huge fan of lines diagonally if they actually have to be straight (i do like diagonal lines but only if that is the intention).
do you have experiences with this issue and know a solution, please, please be kind and let me know.
hope you like the pictures anyway and if you like to see more creative projects click on links below.
wish you a great weekend! until next time!
