Before I start this post, I should start with explaining that these sofa covers are the last thing I made for my mum. My sweet mum died completely unexpected two weeks ago. She passed away in her sleep due to heart failure, at the age of 66. Much too soon, much too young. She left us all helpless.
I started work on the sofa covers a while ago, last year in spring I think. It was a project I kept working on in between, when I had some spare time. Mum asked me to crochet something for their sofa, because there was a damaged spot on dads side. Replacing the leather would cost them a lot of money, so she asked for my help.
I pinned some things for inspiration, because I wanted it to start with some sort of granny square. She choose the daisy flower petal pattern from Repeat Crafter Me and I worked from that. As colours we picked colours that were already present in their living room. I like the end result, and I am so gratefull that I was able to finish it before she passed away.
In total I made four things for mum. You can see her smartphone pouch on this picture as well, next to her glasses on the coffee table. She had an owl keychain buddy as well, and the crochet shawl I made for her last year. She was really proud of that one, and used to wear it everytime she went out to something fancy. It accompagnied her on her last trip ever as well. My sweet mum, I miss you more than words can ever express.
