I chose a fabric called Calluna Amethyst.
My idea was to embellish a cushion, so I started by making a simple envelope back cushion cover.
And made crocheted roses and petals. For the roses I used a pattern from Petals to Picots. And for the petals and leaves I made it up as I went along!

After a lot of umming and ahing I finally settled on how I wanted the flowers to be arranged on the cushion.

The petals pop a lot more in real life than on the photo, unfortunately, but I'm really happy with the finished piece.
And I've still got enough fabric to make another cushion!
