Project Twenty Five: The First Circular Stool Cushion Cover
The first of the cushion covers for the stool cushions that I made at the weekend was for the stool that lives under the boy’s workstation. Although I am generally the kind of girl who shies away from having all the soft furnishings in a room made out of the same fabric, I decided to use the same bold Ikea tree fabric as I used to cover the swivel chair, and which also happens to be what the blind in the boy’s room is made out of. I have two very good reasons for sticking with this fabric:
1. I have a lot of that tree fabric left, and it was very cheap.
2. The boy couldn’t care less if his stool is the same as his swivel chair and his blind.
There is a hidden zip in the side and two ties on the bottom to tie the cushion to the stool, keeping it nicely in place.
I have to admit that I am not a hundred percent happy with how this cushion cover turned out, it isn’t smooth, especially around the side, I think sewing circles is not an easy thing, but hopefully I can improve on the design before making the next two cushion covers. Anyone have any suggestions for what went wrong and how I can prevent this happening with the nest two cushion covers?
