Cushion for a friend

CUSHION SUNBURST JOANNE PEDRO 1

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.

Bag made out of Noro Taiyo sock yarn

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!
