My Celtic Cushion is finished!

I recently finished the other half of my Celtic cushion cover and joined the two halves together.

I chose to sew the sides together as I thought that would be the easiest in spite of the fact that I don’t like and am not very good at sewing (probably some cause and effect here!).

stitchingI actually sewed from the right side because the stitches would tend to show anyway and I thought this way I would get the neatest result.

As a closure, so I can remove the cushion pad easily should it become necessary, I decided on buttons. buttonsI had thought about clear, virtually invisible, buttons but then I saw these and thought they were very pretty in an understated way.  buttons on cushion

I increased the length of the original side with a few rows of dcs for something to sew the buttons onto then used the natural gaps in the crochet for button holes.

buttons on cushionI think this gives an unobtrusive finish to what I regard as the ‘back’ of the cushion. Though with all my cushions I turn them from time to time to see both sides.

Here you can see the nominal front of the cushion (the side I showed you before). cushion frontAnd the new side that is a variation. other sideI have been having the cushion alongside me on the settee since I made it, so I removed all the mess, to show it off to you. cushion on setteeThe snuggle blanket is there, all ready, for when I need it.

I am very happy with my new cushion and the interleaving layers make it very tactile.

I regard all my cushions as little works of art and here you can see them all in a row. fronts of three cushionsThese are nominally the fronts.

And here are the other sides. other side of three cushionsI think they make a lovely set of cushions to brighten up my sitting room.
