The thought of crochet Aran can be quite scary but these cushions are designed with somebody new to Aran in mind.

3x 3cm Buttons, 35cm cushion pads.

I had a big blank wall and the choice of a picture and a small clock or a big feature clock. The big clocks that we liked were well out of my price range so I eventually bought a "minimalist" clock.
Anybody who knows me knows I don't do minimalist..................
The numbers are from the "Number Mobiles" pattern
and most of the motifs are from the "Scrapbooking with Flowers & Friends" pattern.
Number 12 used motifs from free patterns and
numbers 1, 7 and 10 used motifs from "Scrapbooking with Crotat".
The Clock bundle contains the Number Mobiles, Flowers & Friends plus the free patterns.
Buying the bundle will save you money on the individual pattern prices.
The crotat pattern is not included but there are enough motifs in the "Flowers & Friends" pattern to decorate each number in the clock.
A separate sheet containing some notes about making the clock is included.
The patterns can be bought separately by clicking on the links.

needle for sewing in ends.
