NEW- Crochet Cushion Cover

It has been a while since my last post but I have been busy and here was a make that I completed in November.
A new take on the Granny Square cushion cover by twisting the panel slightly before sewing together.  Makes up quite quickly and does give the cushion two different sides.

I am looking forward to better weather for taking pictures but I hope you can see what I did.  Good for beginners too.
Happy New Year !

Moving away from the Granny Square....Slowly

Please excuse the odd shaped pics but they have come from my phone.  In a bid to move away from the faithful granny square I started making the above cushion following a pattern in Simply Crochet (I think).  After putting a question on my FB page as to whether it should in fact be a bag instead the over whelming feedback was a BAG.  So I made some handles and added a lining.
Sorry but the Granny stitch crept in there for the back panel as the original design was meant to have a fabric back for the cushion.  Rather tropical looking in the end.
