Thanks, It is very beautiful.


Hi Lucy... do you have a pattern for the gorgeous crochet squares you have used? Have done my first project based on your patterns - stripey cushion for my 7 year old boys room - and would love to do a girly one for Miss 5 year old... Jo, Auckland, NZ

Cute! Really creative! I like this one.

Hello ! , I´m from Argentina, english is my second language, so , sorry because of my mistakes, but I love your blog, I´m an addict from it, I read every days, I like a lot how you write and describe landscapes.

Oh, how wonderful that I found this just as I finished my cushion front. What a brilliant idea and you explain everything so well Lucy ..... thank you !! You give such joy and happiness to so many people. Lynda in Cornwall.


Hey Lucy! I am in love with your blog and your patterns! Thank you so very much for sharing them....I am in the process of making a ripple cushion cover and could use a bit more direction on putting on the back part...if you wouldn't mind, i would love to see pictures of the reverse side of your ripple cushion! Thanks so much!

This is SO gorgeous! I love it, and now I'm looking at my IKEA cushion covers in absolute dismay ... Better get cracking :)

Great post, looks great the cushion, I love all your work, thanks for sharing with all of the web.


WOOOW fantastic, well done.

Hello Again. I have a huge thank you to you for this post. I have just finished my own crochet cushion using your backing idea! My first Lusy-esk Ta-Dah moment on my blog! Thank you Cindy xxx


Hi Lucy
Do you have instructions for the crochet side of the cushion cover?
Thank you

Thanks so much for this wonderful idea!! I've used it to make a round crocheted flower pillow and have posted pics as well as a link back to your tutorial on my blog. You can see it here-

Vera said: "This is such a beautiful project and a wonderful way of recycling old jumpers. Thank you. You're so generous with your time that I feel rude asking a question, but here goes... With the smaller rectangle that you cut from the sleeve, do you do anything to the cut edge that the buttons will be placed on before zigzagging through both pieces? Sorry, I'm a beginner prone to making mistakes! Vera, Sydney"

Hey Luce I was wondering the same thing as Vera - do you worry about the raw edge or just leave it?

I am in the process of making a little squares cushion (you can see my starting squares on my blog) and am curious about the finsihing. I will probably zig zag the edge, but I was just wondering what you do.

I am into granny squares at the moment, as Sarah London put out the call for people to knit for the Queensland (Australia) flood appeal.
So on my usual look through the Flickr groups came across a link to your site.
A quick question about your granny squares. Do you crochet as you go - trying to look at the photo to make sure. Would be a real hassle having to sew them all together separately.

Lucy, I just adore your blog and your delightful designs! I would love to try this cushion, start to finish .... is the pattern for the front posted somewhere my noivce self can see?? Thanks so much for your time and generosity with this site - I am thrilled to have stumbled across your world! Shalane - Ontario, Canada


Thank you so much for this amazing tutorial... I can't go wrong! It took me much longer to find the perfect second hand sweater for the back than it did to crochet the front.... but now I'm set!


I love this simple, small granny square design you used in your pillow. I'm trying to figure out how you joined the squares— the corners are where I'm having trouble. Is there a tutorial for this technique on your blog?


Hi lucy! Just sending you a link to my ripple pattern cushion with thrifted jumper back from your wonderful tutorial. http://www.flickr.com/photos/50402978@N02/4739836919/in/photostream/ Thank you again for being so generous. :) i can't wait to wake up and crochet!

Nossa Que Coisa Linda ! ! E o reaproveitamento Foi genial! ! parabéns


Very inspiring and I love the hot colors.
You make it look so easy too. Thanks!


(in more ways than one - using old jumpers for cushions is a brilliant idea, and such brilliant ... as in bright ... colours too)
I have been getting lost reading your blog - you make some wonderful stuff!
... and now I have at least one more item on my "I want to make this" list ... and have not yet found that extra 50 hours I need in each day ... sigh ...
