A vibrant, colourful vintage style cushion can be made with ease following the clear, concise instructions.  When we made the cushion ourselves it was a quick and enjoyable project to do, the only issue we had was that we found that there was not quite enough wool to finish the entire cushion, we needed to add some more red yarn to the bunch.  Besides that this was a fantastic way to spend a few hours.

The Crochet Book by Cath Kidston is available from Quadrille for £25.00
