Well after making my granny squares I did wonder what I would do with them, I thought a blanket was a bit too ambitious, so I decided I would make them into a cushion.

As this is for my daughter I thought it may have more longevity if it was put onto fabric and have a fabric backing so off I went to find a tutorial to give me a helping hand I knew what I wanted to do I just couldn’t get it right in my head. Someone on a forum I use suggested I overlock my crochet to a piece of fabric and another person posted a link to this tutorial it was perfect for what I wanted Here

So I combined the two, now let me tell you that sewing/overlocking wool to a piece of fabric is not as easy as it sounds, but I held my breath and went for it.

I hope she likes it.
