Crochet Cushions & Throws

Cushions and throws are a great way to add a new twist to your decor. It’s easy to re-purpose an old pillow by putting a new cover on it. They’re also perfect to make this time of year as it grows warmer outside and you don’t want a heavy project sitting on your lap. Crocheted cushions are great projects to work on while you travel, too! I know not many of us are travelling these days, so taking a smaller project to make on the deck is also a good idea.

Even though we’re still working on our bathroom renovation (and I don’t plan on putting any throw cushions in there), all this renovating (as it creeps into more and more rooms in the house) has me thinking about refreshing the decor all over our house. New covers for cushions are a great way to use up a few skeins of yarn and add a fresh new look to (almost) any room! So check out these great cushions and throws crochet patterns that I’ve curated for you!

This round Rosewheel Cushion Crochet Pattern has a neat embossed look to it with the front post stitches that form the beautiful pinwheel flower design on the front. I love crocheting in the round and this pillow pattern looks like it would work up quickly, keeping my interest with the embossed design on the front.

Here’s another lovely textured cushion cover, the Boho Tassel Throw Pillow Crochet Pattern has a lovely fringe for a casual, vintage vibe. The bobbles and tassels make this cushion cover interesting to crochet, but also a lovely textural experience to just cuddle up to and play with while watching TV.

I’m also completely enjoying the vintage vibe of this Summer of 77 Rainbow Pillow Crochet Pattern. The fun bobbles along the rows of the rainbow. And it’s so easy to be inspired to make this cushion in whatever colours suit your taste! This would look great in a teen’s room as well, with a funky and fun vibe, but not too baby-ish.

While it’s not a cushion, this Love for Frida Blankie Crochet Pattern would make a great throw blanket to add a splash of colour to any room with a fun vintage vibe. If you love Frida Kahlo and her bright and colourful style, you’ll definitely be inspired to make this colourful blanket! It’s a flexible pattern that can be modified easily to use up your existing stash! There’s nothing better than a project that you don’t have to buy more yarn for!

Haha, I bet you weren’t thinking this when you were thinking cushions. But this Cactus Pincushion Crochet Pattern is such a fun little project idea. Super quick to make up and it would make an excellent gift for someone who loves to sew. I definitely think I need one of these in my craft room!

I know I’m not exactly sticking to the theme here today, but I think this Dahlias and Leaves Tapestry Crochet Bag Pattern is so lovely and I think you could easily modify it to close it up and make it a throw pillow. But how cute is this pattern? Love it!

Father’s Day is coming up and you probably don’t have quite enough time to make this Crocheted Cheeseburger Ottoman Pattern unless you start crocheting like a mad-woman, but isn’t it so fun? This would be so fun in a family room, a game room, or a teen’s room. Such a fun idea!

A throw can be a cushion, a blanket or a rug! Check out this Black and White Scandinavian Rug Crochet Pattern. Isn’t it fun? I’m definitely feeling this vibe for our family room, whenever we get to that project (but it’s coming up more and more in conversation these days, so *fingers crossed*!). I’ve been wanting to crochet a rug for a while and this one seems like just the right vibe. Simple, but with enough changes in the pattern to keep me interested.

So back to pillows! This Cowhide Pillow Cover Crochet Pattern is so funky and no cows have to be harmed in its making! I love the funky cowhide inspiration, here! Perfect for a farmhouse vibe or a great gift for a farm family!

I also love this Tropical Leaf Pillow Cover Crochet Pattern. All these different designs on pillows are so fun to cycle into your decor. All you need to do is put a button or zipper closure on this lovely pillow cover and you can easily store away the cover and cycle it in at the start of a new season.

I’m also loving this Super Star Pillow Cover Crochet Pattern. It totally reminds me of the Dr Seuss “The Sneeches” story. But, you know, if you made it in blue and white, you’d have a fun American flag-inspired pillow to display for Independence Day celebrations (you know, if you’re into that… I’m Canadian, so it’s not really my thing, but the stars are pretty cool). This throw pillow would also go well in a beachy themed room and could make a nice addition to a teen’s room, with a little more sophistication.

While a little less sophisticated, this Crochet Donut Pillow Pattern is full of fun! Made with velour yarn, this fun cushion would be so adorable in a kids’ room or a funky family room. It would be so fun to delight a kid with this sweet pillow!

Or if donuts aren’t your thing, check out this Crochet Dog Pillow Pattern. Again, made with the velour/blanket yarn, this cute puppy pillow would be a great pattern to make for a dog-loving kid!

DIY Wall Hangings

We redecorated our sitting room this year. It started with fixing the ceiling, which had a hole in it from someone sticking their foot through it when we were renovating the bathroom upstairs. Isn’t it fascinating how one project can lead to the next one? Haha. Well, after living with a hole in our ceiling for an embarrassingly long time, we finally got to fixing it. Nothing is easy in this old house because there’s a layer of drywall over the original lath and plaster, so it’s always a really big mess. Additionally, nothing is straight, so that’s another adventure.

However, our ceiling went from this

to this

in a day and a half with three of us working on it (and two of us are not very experienced and one of us is over 70). Seriously, if you need to re-do your ceiling, this is definitely something to consider. (Here’s a link to a DIY blog that has more information.) So much time and back-breaking work saved on mudding and taping and sanding, not to mention how much easier cleanup was!

Since all the furniture was already out of the room and it’d been nearly 9 years since we’d painted that room, I decided I may as well paint the room, too. I went with a light neutral grey, but it took us a couple tries to get just the right colour. I put down 2 coats of primer because we had it and a wee little bit of the red was peeking through after the first coat. Primer is like 1/2 the price of paint, so you may as well use that to get full coverage. The first colour we chose ended up looking too cool in the room, so we went back to the store and had the second can of paint we had bought (that thankfully we didn’t need to open) and had them re-tint it to a warmer grey. It’s amazing how our eyes can trick us. As I was painting the second colour, I asked Mr Evangelist’s opinion and he said, “It looks brown” (he did not want brown). And to be fair, it looked much warmer than the first colour. But after the first wall was painted, I knew it was going to be ok. He was out at the time and I texted him, “You are going to be shocked at how not-brown this looks.”

So, now the room is grey. Here’s a photo of the wall and the finished mantle (another project I finished for this room this summer). It’s really hard to get a good picture of the colour of the room; as you can see in this photo, the light really affects how it looks. Anyway, I like it, it’s very neutral, it’s lighter in there, and we’ve added some pops of colour. While I’m still thinking about the love seat, I’ve also started thinking about the walls. And right now, wall hangings are pretty fun and trendy and I think it might just be the right thing for this room. Check out some of these patterns and let me know what you think I should put in the room.

I could go simple and trendy with this diagonal fringe The Les Cayes Bobble Wall Hanging. It’s an easy/intermediate crochet pattern, so if you’re new to crochet, it would be a great project to try out your new skills!

I’m not sure this round crocheted wall hanging pattern with flowers is going to fit with the rest of the decor in the room, but I still think this one is really fun and it might be nice in a bedroom or hallway… Definitely something to keep in mind.

The Eleanor Wall Hanging crochet pattern can make 4 different styles of wall hangings, which makes this pattern super versatile. I love how it has a narrow and mini version so you could basically make a wall hanging for any little space in your house!

This one caught my eye because it has that beautiful mustard yellow in it. It really just got me thinking that maybe I could come up with my own simple design in the bobble stitch similar to this That’s Amore Wall Hanging pattern, which would look super sweet hanging in a nursery.

Now, macrame seems to have made a bit of a comeback. For me, this is definitely a throwback to my 1980’s Girl Guide days and I don’t think I’ve done macrame ever since. I did, however, have a solid year or two of complex friendship bracelet making, so I think it wouldn’t be so hard to pick up some macrame to make this macrame wall hanging pattern.

So far, I think this Adirondack Wall Hanging is leading the pack for me. The mustard colour is just perfect to go with the pops of colour we’ve put in the room and the natural colours and scene would fit in just perfectly with the rustic accents that we have in there. Time to go pick up some Thick & Quick!

Here’s another easy crochet pattern for a lovely boho wall hanging. I love the way this one is styled with the hats on the wall. It’s definitely a style I appreciate, but I think I would feel like a big phoney with a styling like this. Also, why is there a garlic braid hanging on this wall with the hats and tambourine? Who stores their things this way? Anyway, that pattern is pretty cool. Make that.

My friend Orsi is a beautiful crochet pattern designer and she has recently started designing tapestry crochet. This might be pushing my sensibilities a little bit, but I also enjoy a bit of whimsy in my house, something interesting that sparks some conversation. I think this Crochet Alpaca Wall Hanging definitely has the potential to be that point of interest in the room.

Are you considering a DIY wall hanging for one of your rooms? Which direction do you think I should head with my wall hanging? If you want to make one of these or think about it later, pick up one of these great patterns or pin it for later!

Boho Rug Crochet Pattern

I’m really attracted to boho style, but I find it really hard to incorporate into my house because I feel like eclectic styles like boho often look messy if not done right –and decorating isn’t necessarily my forte– so I’m torn. So, I mostly just collect ideas on Pinterest!

*Disclosure: some of the following links are affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

Check out this super great boho rug crochet pattern. It would be a great stash-buster!

Just a word of warning, though: those first few rounds will go quick, quick, quick and you’ll really feel like you’re making some progress. As it gets larger, the rounds (unsurprisingly) take longer… and longer. I made this race track rug for my son quite a few years ago and the outer rounds took FOREVER…

It is really cool, though.

I hope you enjoy this pattern and let me know if you make it and send me a picture of it in your boho-decorated room! I need to find a place to get some more boho in my life!

Pin it for later!
