This christmas present is a gift that I made for Andy's mum, to go with some of the colours in her livingroom. I made this based on an overlay mandala pattern I had for the front design and the rest of it I made up as I went along. The overlay mandala part of the cushion was the easiest part, crocheting to make the front and back meet however provided a challenge for me. I definitely did fudge it a little, hooking two stitches from the front into one at the back. It took me a month to complete this one as I was crocheting it in turn with all the other projects I had to complete as well!
