This is the third installment of my crocheting journey with the vintage popcorn stitch cushion cover. I made one in a citrus colored cotton yarn this time. The first two are in vanilla and taupe.
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.
