Crochet Notes - Christmas Cushion

Christmas Cushion

Using Starflower Hexagon by Julie Mnemosyne - I always thought this pattern would double up as a great Poinsettia and I'm pleased with the results. My first Christmas decoration of the year.

3.75mm hook
yellow DK
2 shades of red DK
green DK

Red pillow case

Right to left:
- yellow = rounds 1 and 2
- red = rounds 3,4 and 5
- dark red = round 6
- green = rounds 7 and 8

Finished fabric with a round of trebles, half trebles and double crochet. 

With the pillow case.

I pinned the fabric onto the pillow case, cut around the shape with a cm border and then sewed around border so that there was a pocket for stuffing. I stuffed the pocket and sewed up the opening.
