Waves Cushion Design for Simply Crochet Magazine…

IMG_7424

I received some happy post today- my ‘Waves’ cushion which I designed and made for Simply Crochet Magazine was returned to me! 🙂

I haven’t written a blog post about it before now because I didn’t take any photos of the cushion before I sent it off to the magazine team back in March. It appeared in Issue 72 and it was on my hooks many months ago… working to a deadline means I don’t always get the opportunity to photograph the designs before sending them off!IMG_9112IMG_9113

The very observant among you may notice that my name is spelled slightly wrong in the magazine… always a little frustrating but they have apologised! Never mind… 🙂 🙂 It was lovely to have the cushion back in my hands again today and to get reacquainted with it… so I popped down to the beach for a little photo shoot…IMG_9111IMG_9047IMG_9022

And then back in the garden I took some more… 🙂IMG_9002IMG_9007

It’s a design I’m super happy with! 🙂 The design brief was for ‘negative space’ which got me thinking about a waves design…  are the waves blue or are they white?! They are in fact both shades with negative spaces being created…IMG_9008(Edited)

It’s made out of cotton for a cool crisp feel and a simple crab stitch edging keeps the design neat…IMG_7424

And the summer holidays are finally upon us! Yay…IMG_9012

Happy Crocheting Everyone… 🙂

  1. Congrats! This is great news 😆💖 keep up the awesome work. The cushion seems to be enjoying back home with you 😂❤️

  2. Beautiful design! I love the sea especially when the waves are big and living in the middle of the UK am miles from the nearest beach so making this would bring the waves to me 😁
