I had enough canvas on hand to sew a slipcover for the stool, but I needed some cording. Remember what I said...I can only use what I have available in the house. Therefore, I had to make my own cording out of this satiny rope cording. (I don't know the actual name of this stuff.)
Anyway, I just ripped strips of canvas and sewed the strips together to make enough for the length of the cording that would outline the top of the stool.
I won't try to explain how to make the slipcover because most of you are much better at sewing than I am...and there are many great tutorials out there if you are unsure. I usually just "wing it" when it comes to sewing. I think it turned out not-to-bad and it looks much better than the chocolate brown velour, but I'll let you be the judge!
Here's someone who likes it.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look...have a great day!
