Not long after that I had completed my first filet square.
Of course what does a girl who hates sewing decide to do?
Turn it into a cushion of course! What a nightmare experience that turned out to be. But I persevered...
...and ended up with an adorable angel cushion. Overall I am very happy with how it turned out and my sewing was not too bad. When it came time to pack it for shipping to America the cushion insert came out. When I had everything ready to go I realised I could not find my filet bookmark I had made as a practise piece before we had received our partners. So I pulled out my pattern again and made another in variegated pink/white/purple thread.
I must say that filet crochet is easier to see in plain colours. The first bookmark I had made in purple and you could see the pattern clearly. In case you can't tell, pattern is three hearts. I will definitely be making more filet projects in the future.
