Here's the fabulous before!
I found this ottoman at the thriftstore for $5.
It's very dated and worn.
I immediately tore off the trim, the skirting...
and it sat that way for a while.
Okay, through our move.
I wanted to redo it...cheaply!
So I dug through my fabric to find something
sturdy enough for an ottoman.
But not quite enough.
But I had a remnant piece of bigger houndstooth
that was just enough more!
I pieced the parts together to go around the chair with
just enough seam allowance.
I traced the top circle of the ottoman on my fabric and cut it out.
I cut it the same size as the top because I wanted it to fit snugly.
Then I sewed the tube around the circle.
Hemmed the bottom edge.
It made a perfect slipcover.
This could have been enough...
But I wanted to secure it.
Just flipped it over and stapled that hemmed edge around the bottom.
And, ta da! A perfectly princessy ottoman!
At least we call it the princess chair, even though
it doesn't look princessy at all.
Goes great with the ugly chair!
