I admit, this project is my "what was I thinking" project. I say that not because it took a lot of skill, no certainly not. I say that because it took A. Lot. Of. Time.
First I will show you where this part came from
The little circle in the top right corner is the piece I used for this project.
Just like Monday's project, I used the crib mattress foam, but this time I cut 2 circles.
I stapled the fabric to the base. I know, it doesn't look pretty, but not to worry, you won't see all those pleats and puckers when I'm finished. I promise.
I cut a million circle out of the same fabric. Ok, well maybe not that many, but I had to cut circles 4 different times since I kept running out.
To keep my circles from fraying, I burned the edges. I know, I said I was crazy!
I folded the circles 2x to look like this and hot glued them all onto the stool.
Yes, I burned my hands a few times.
Worth it, definitely!
Don't you just love it?
To finish it off, I hot glued some felt to the base to make it pretty on the bottom.
I cannot tell you how many times I asked myself, "what were you thinking?" because it took a long time. I am so glad I stuck with it, because I love this piece!
