A stool story.........(not toilet humour....)

I have been looking for a footstool for a little while and found just what I needed yesterday in the junk shop- a fiver ! I gathered together my stored denim stash and decided to recover it with denim just like the ones you see in arty farty places like Anthropology!

Here is the before-

Pretty grotty really! I did thnk I may have wasted a fiver!

Here is the finished stool

I included one patch of union jack print on Japanese Kokka fabric! I am really pleased with the result- it is going to get a lot of use!
I finished a lovely baby quilt this week too- hand quilted this one with a bamboo batting, love the result!

I recovered my baby ironing board as it was threadbare from ironing all my quilting fabrics-

Very Aussie looking!

And finally- a sneek preview of the shirt quilt-heres the top, I have sice sandwiched it and begun hand quilting- will post finished quilt soon. 

Cheers for now


  1. Great stool make-over - yes Anthropologie does make me draw in a deep breath with its prices! And I might even be happy to iron with a cover like that one!

  2. Great redo on the stool and the baby quilt is beautiful! I really like polka dots....and the shirt thrifty! Can't wait to see the finished article.
