Mini granny love

Mini granny love!


Colour


pattern and texture


and ends ends ends!


This cushion reminds me of Smarties!
(for those of you reading this outside of UK
 they are colourful sugar coated chocolate sweets
enjoyed by children)


I have had sooooooo much fun making this gift

I love the firm texture and wonderful stitch definition of
and the colours are absolutely delightful


The front is made from mini grannies 
and the back is 1 large granny square,


crocheted together with a button fastening
and completed with a scalloped edge.


This cushion made in bright jewel colours has been so popular!
 I've had many requests for a pattern but I made it up as I went!


So to help you all out
 I am planning to write a tutorial this week
 as I make a second one in tropical colours!


100 centres are made
and the large granny for the back is now complete


Do come back next weekend 
and read how I make a mini granny cushion cover


Wishing you all a colourful day

Happy hookin

Heather
