This is the front of the cushion you see in the next two posts. I used a pattern by Priscilla Hewitt, “Sunburst Granny Square”, (1998), found on the internet for the square motifs. Here, every one of the sixteen squares are different in colour combination.
I made this bag out of Noro Taiyo sock yarn which was intended for another project which didn’t work out, so I unravelled the yarn from that project and made this bag instead. I saw bags made in this design online before but didn’t have the pattern. I worked out how to make it myself from viewing images of finished bags online. I made 13 granny squares and joined them together, and figured out how to make the strap myself. I lined the bag with more of the red and white polka dot fabric I had for the bag in the previous post. It is a very light bag, and it is very cute!
