A friend of mine lost her mother recently. She had kept this small piece of her crochet work and asked me to use it to make a cushion. As it was white I chose black velvet for the cushion.
I cut an 18" square for the front and laid the crochet down the centre and hand stitched it in place. I overlocked the whole piece to prevent any fraying.
I added a piece of black braid down the sides and machined that in place which secured the edges. For the back I cut 2 rectangles, one 18" x 10" and the other 18" x 12" so I could create a flap on one side to cover the zipper. I had never tried that before and I was pleased with the result.
