I just finished my flower cushion cover and I was loving it. It looked so bright and happy. Then I spotted the canvas I had stuck in a corner, I had the idea of making something artsyfartsy for my living room wall. I wanted something bright and happy above the sofa. I had a million ideas, but none of them I was able to realise.
But then it hit me! Why not recreate the cushion cover on canvas? So I made a bunch of flowers and just went from there on.. and it worked and I'm totally in love with it! It's hanging above the sofa, injecting color and happiness in my living room!
The feedback I received on facebook/instagram was overwhelming and amazing. So I will be recreating the canvas, a bit smaller, as the original is 100cm by 70 cm.
And I just notice there is a flower missing in the original canvas! Haha! Will fix that!
The canvas I will be using for this is 30cm by 40cm.
Phildar No3 or Catania in different colors for the flowers
Catania Grande for the flower stems
Crochet hook size 3.5mm
Yarn needle with a sharp point
Glue gun or glue dots
Pencil and ruler
Take the width of your canvas and calculate how many flowers you will need.
I have 40cm and will add a flower every 4 or 5 cm, I like it a bit uneven. So I will need 8 flowers.
It will depend on how big your flowers are. I will only use 2Rounds flowers (so flowers created with only 2 DC or HDC rounds)
Crochet 8 flowers of your choice.
Draw lightly with a pencil lines on your canvas.
Insert needle from back to front, just above the wood on your line. Go around the canvas and insert your hook again from back to front.
Stitch along the line evenly (not too even, as nature is not always evenly as well).
For the leaves, insert needle to the side of the stem and stitch 3 times in the same stitch.
Repeat stitching along the lines, adding randomly leaves to the stem.
Back side of the canvas
With sticky dots or a glue gun attach flowers to canvas on top of stems. To make it secure, add some stitches to each centre of flower.
And you're done!
