Dainty Daisy Cushion Cover

As I promised, here is a finished object with the Dainty Daisy blocks from last week. It is by far the girliest thing I have ever made 🙂

The centre are dainty daisies connected in the final white round. I only used this amount of squares because the blue was a tiny left over from the Mitered and Chequered blanket. I then crocheted a row of dcs around the resulting square and then some 5dc shells round and round until desired size. I made the final round in pink and decided to have that as edging. Here is a little detail.

The shell pattern is basically this one, modified for the rounds. Btw, have you seen the amount of free crochet stitches there? It will be my go-to place for some time, I suppose 🙂

I am also quite happy with my choice of the backing fabric.

I was going to stitch it by hand but in the end I just could not face the task and decided to top stitch it on with the sewing machine. While I would do it differently next time (making sure that I have a straight edge on which to stitch, such as a row of scs or hdcs and then put the edging on top of that, also block the top more carefully) I like the result and will certainly do it next time as well. I also tried the 4-step-button-hole thing on my machine (for the first time in the decade that I have had it) and I could not be happier with the nice, quick and easy button holes!

So all in all, a nice and satisfying project, methinks 🙂
