I was searching for just the right fabric to cover this stool and then I spotted an antique table cloth I had. I did not put the table cloth for sale because some of the lace had been repaired and it had a few minor pin holes in it, Eureka! It was perfect for covering the stool!
The center of the table cloth was a perfect fit for the top of the stool.
I sewed down from each corner to make it slightly fitted.
Each corner hung down a little to far so when I sewed each corner seam, I had these little pieces left from the bottom of each corner.
I sewed these together and made a fluffy thing a ma jig which I put a vintage pin on and added to the front of the stool.
I put a pin on the back of the whole thingy in case someone would like to remove it.
So many of the vintage table cloths have center square patterns perfect for covering a stool or chair cushion. This would be a perfect use for your not quite "Perfect" linen.
Yep, I was feeling pretty cleaver when I finished this.
I put it in my booth at Orange Tree for $32, I usually price my stools between $15-$28, I can always lower the price, but I really liked this. Plus the table that won't sell really needs some company!
