Seven days back I saw the most great Blooming Flower Pot Holder made by Days of Yarning and included on Hookin on Hump Day. I knew in a flash I anticipated that would make this into a pad for my baby young woman (I’m 23 weeks pregnant this week). I had as of late gained the Daisy Garden Nursery Bedding from Pottery Barn Kids and this growing bloom would run perfectly with my point!
The case for the pot holder is almost exactly the equivalent as the Blooming Flower Cushion made by Attic 24 (another most cherished case of mine!). The direction and photos of the cushion genuinely helped and gave me an idea of how I expected to make the back of my cushion. Regardless of the way that you can basically seek after her orientation on how she made the back of her cushion 🙂 Best part is, both of these models are free!!
Here is the yarn I used:
– Lion Brand Pound of Love Pink (this is the light pink shading and a right match to the light pink in the Pottery Barn bedding!)
– Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Pink Poodle (this is the darker pink shading)
– Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice 101 Pink (this is the more peachy looking shading)
– Loops and Threads Impeccable in Aran (this matches the sensitive yellow immaculately!!)
I made a total of 8 rounds of bloom agitates with a size H sew catch. The finished best piece evaluated somewhat more than 12 inches. HERE is the free instructional exercise I sought after.
I required the back of the cushion to be worked in determined rounds. I didn’t require any kind of wrinkle to show and I expected to use HDC’s (as opposed to DC’s) to make the lines more diminutive and all the more firmly. So I began with a charm ring of 10 HDC’s and kept extending my rounds until the point that I had undefined number of join from the last round of the best piece. You MUST have a comparable number of lines on the last round of both of your pieces so they will organize when you sew them together toward the end.
Here is the manner in which I extended my rounds:
Charm Ring, 10 HDC in ring, continue weaving in rounds,
Cycle 2: 2 HDC in each join around (20 HDC)
Cycle 3: 2 HDC in first affix, HDC in next, repeat cycle (30 HDC)
Cycle 4: 2 HDC in first line, HDC in next 2, go over around (40 HDC)
Cycle 5: 2 HDC in first affix, HDC in next 3, repeat around (50 HDC)
Cycle 6: 2 HDC in first join, HDC in next 4, reiterate around (60 HDC)
See the case of additions? Prop up until the point that the moment that you get a comparative proportion of lines (or close to a comparable proportion of attaches) as your best piece.
When you are done extending, keep on hdc in each attach around until your cushion back is at the desired length. It will start to twist in, like a noteworthy top. This is okay in light of the way that you will either be stuffing it with poly-fil OR you could buy a cushion install as I did.
Here is the thing that the back of the pad looked like when I was done making my rounds. Do whatever it takes not to connect off in light of the way that next you will fasten the front and back pieces together.
