VIVA LA CHAIR PAD!

A while ago my sister asked me to revive a little chair pad that went with an old doll chair of her childhood. Since childhood the chair has been passed onto my nephew who has become quite fond of it. It was in pretty rough shape…

Ew, right?

I’ve been wanting to try a wonky star quilt pattern for a while and decided this would be the time to do it. I’ve also been waiting for a suitable project to cut into my Heather Ross gnome fabric and decided my nephew would be the first to own a piece of it. Took me 3 years to cut into this fabric…

Here’s my wonky star:

Covering the pad:

And on the chair:

I’m so happy with how it came out! I 100% winged it when I was putting it together to actually wrap around the pad and surprisingly it ended well. I wish I had more of these revival projects. It was really gratifying turning ick into SICK(!)

    This is gorgeous 🙂 Perfect fabric combination and a very worthy project of cutting your fabric (I totally understand where you’re coming from) xo
