U is for Ugly


U is for Ugly

 

I’m  making this Owl cushion from the pattern I bought. 
Crochet pattern owl cushion by ATERGcrochet in two sizes
 

My first attempt was this. 

 
 
 
Ugly! Because as I said before I can’t always choose colors  So I went to her Etsy shop and studied the pix of the cushions and then I made this.
 
 

 

Ahh!  Much better and so pretty.   Even though this picture doesn't do the colors justice.  It's purples and pinks.
 Now I can’t wait to finish it and see it on my love seat on the porch.

  1. I didn't think your first attempt was ugly at all but I do like the second one better.

    1. Thanks. It wasn't so much ugly as the darker colors were so glaring with the pastels. I had thought it would be a nice contrast but it wasn't

    1. I'm really in love with this designer's patterns right now. I've bought several. I've learned new ways to increase a circle from them
