Granny Squares Cushion Cover

The idea for this pattern was easy, but creating it took some trial and error. It's always worth it in the end, and I've used the same design for another in blues. Sized for a 40cm square insert. .

Crochet a Pencilcase

This one is really - just for fun ..... although, practical as well. Three granny squares are joined with slip stitch, treble crochet worked around to bring it to the size of the zip. A cotton lining was made for the inside and a charm attached to the zipper handle. Measurements are 10cm x 25cm.
