I decided I would try (for the first time ever..... a little backwards as most people start with these...) a granny square. And I LOVED the ones that had an elevated "3D" flower in the middle. I am thinking I will make 8 of these and create a rectangular pillow. Or maybe a purse. Or a table runner. Anyhoo.....
I picked some bright colors - Lavender, Hot Pink, and Bright Green (for this one) to use up some stash and thought I'd follow THIS free pattern.
But, I wanted a larger, deeper flower and decided to add a 3rd petal layer.
And then I got in a bind reading the directions on how to start the square part and attach to the flower.
So, instead of burning any more brain cells, I decided to create my own idea, based in part on THIS video.
|Flower looks red on my screen, but is Hot Pink|
|I love this view!|
|This shows the back side, how I created the "square" part of the Granny Square.|
Hopefully, I will have the finished pillow/purse/who knows sometime soon WITH the pattern after I write it down and triple check it.
I may be linking to THESE parties!
