The lacy motif is very open and could be used for any number of items, people on Instagram @crochetlovemelbourne gave me lots of ideas when I was wondering what to make. You could make a cushion cover, bag, tops, a wrap, table runner, curtains, the list is endless! Keep persisting and you will be able to crochet the 1970’s motif cushion crochet pattern!
Here is the YouTube tutorial and you can find the full written pattern below!
I decided to make a cushion as I had some calico which I thought might be nice as a backing. The original pattern is from a Mon Tricot magazine in English from 1975. See the picture that accompanies the pattern below! The pattern is for a top which we probably wouldn’t wear with a bowler hat and a floral dress these days…..
Light and Lacy Motif pattern
5. Once you have completed the first stand alone motif, you then join the next motif onto this one by completing the first two rounds the same then third round ( joining round) as follows
10.Continue in the same manner joining corners and sides of motifs to make any size or shape, I will leave the rest up to your imagination and please tag me on Instagram @crochetlovemelbourne if you make any interesting creations!
1.To make the cushion, I cut two squares of calico material measuring slightly larger than my square of crochet motifs.
2. Then I pinned and hand stitched ( or you can also use a sewing machine) the crochet motif square onto one of the squares.
3. I put the squares wrong sides together and used a sewing machine to sew nearly all the way around but leaving a 20 cm gap to add the stuffing.
4. I turned the cushion inside out so the seams were on the inside and added cushion filling through the hole then hand stitched the hole to close it. Voila, a cushion! I hope you enjoyed crocheting the 1970’s motif cushion crochet pattern!
