Turn a padded cushion stool from dated floral print...
It's just a padded 4 legged stool with a flowy skirt!
Save the button for later!
You can DIY this with a bar stool type chair, some padding, a drill and a button!
I used 2 yards of gorgeous fabric from Riley Blake.
(They sent me 2 yards of 2 beautiful patterns to play with!)
I also used hot glue/gun
5/8" staples and staple gun
Iron...I could hear my mom saying "the press makes the dress"
Needle and embroidery floss
rounded out into a circle about 8 inches bigger on all side.
Fold the material under twice...to keep it from fraying.
Then staple the fabric around the stool.
I used a bead of hot glue on all the edges instead of hemming it.
Then start by tacking the 2 ends of the skirting to the base of the stool.
Tack in the middle so the slack is even.
Repeat until the entire skirting is gathered.
Repeat with the second piece, overlapping the ends slightly over the first piece.
Finish it off by tacking around the entire stool as close to the edge as possible.
This will even out the ruffle and make sure it hangs perfectly!
Use hot glue to secure it while gathering it tightly.
It will look great once it's sewn on.
(if you are just using a bar stool...just drill a hole into the center first)
Then thread on the button, thread it back through the hole.
Tie it, then lay the threads down...staple them a few times and
add some hot glue for good measure!
I'm sure there is someone in your life that would just love one too!
