A while ago I found a vintage footstool in the local charity shop for £2. Not one to pass up on a bargain I brought it home and it was immediately fought over by the girls, the eldest one won as the youngest already has her own stool. Now although I love the shape and design of the stool I do not love navy blue. I apologise to anybody out there who may be a fan of navy blue but after spending 5 years of my younger life wearing as much navy nylon as they could cram into a school uniform, including knee length socks and big knickers, it's no wonder I'm not a fan.
After much deliberation it was decided that a cover would be made. I didn't want to take off the original upholstery for fear of ruining the integrity and so a removable (and therefore washable and more child friendly) cover was the way to go. As I am terrible at sewing it had to be a crochet footstool cover and so new footstool was born..............
I'm not entirely convinced that the choice of predominantly white yarn was a good idea but I live in hope.
I'm now hoping that I can hang out my washing without it starting to rain the minute that I close the door. Wish me luck.
