The cushion inserts in the previous two cushion covers were sewn into the cover and cannot be removed. For this piece, I decided to sew a zipper to the fabric so that the cushion insert can be removed. It was my first time sewing a zipper and as you can see from the photo, it was not sewn straight even with the use of pins! I definitely need more practice with the sewing machine.
I like the bright and cheery prints on this fabric that I bought in Japan.
This time, I had a slightly easier time making a roll-hem on the fabric and sewing it to the crochet piece. I can now see why some crafters use a plain fabric (as opposed to one with prints) so that you don’t have worry about the prints looking ‘crooked’ or ‘slanted’.
I am going to take a break from this popcorn stitch pattern for a while. There is another 3-D rosette granny square pattern that I have been dying to try and have only recently found a video tutorial on it.
