Crochet Crown Cushion

Crochet Crown Cushion ta dah!  Yes, I have finally finished my crochet crown cushion, just in time for the Queen’s official birthday celebrations this weekend!

It is a really simple cushion made of 9 half treble (UK terminology) squares, in ultra patriotic red, white and blue, slip stitched together and then each square has a little crown made using the free crochet crown applique pattern, sewn to it.

I edged each crown with a double crochet row of stitches in gold yarn for a bit of royal luxe!  Each crown is finished off with 3 shell buttons at the top and then 4 slightly smaller shell buttons along the row of twisted trebles at the base of the crown. Proper royal glamour!

The cushion pad is 18 inches square and I made a simple envelope back using some red and white gingham linen I had in my big basket of fabrics.

I am so pleased with my crochet crown cushion!  It just shows the difference colour can make to a project – the original crochet crown applique design was in pink and white for princess bunting and I had also remembered seeing this crochet crown cushion in Zara Home last year (Zara Home is really inspiring for great, modern home-ware designs) but my vision was clearly quite a bit different!

I know I have been a bit royal obsessed recently and it culminated with me attending a party for a very special lady’s 90th birthday :)
