small wooden box
needle and thread
I have been saving a wooden box that our clementines came in just for this project.
Princess P had to decided which dolls she wanted the chair for.... a historical doll or one of her modern dolls. She decided to go with the modern dolls. She picked out two fabrics, a pink and a green one. We measured out the fabric so it would cover the box.
We cut out a piece of foam to cover the top of the box.
I fold the fabric over the box and glued with a fabric glue.
I did the two longest sides first and then worked on the shorter sides.
I folded in the sides to form a clean edge. I then folded down the fabric and glued it in place.
I pressed down firmly to get a clean fold.
I used clips to keep the fabric in place while the glue dried.
While chair dried, we worked on the pillows. I cut a rectangle a little bigger than the box to allow for seam allowance. Princess P sewed up the sides. We then stuffed the pillow with stuffing and hand stitched the pillows closed.
Once the bottom part of the chair was done, our mama cat immediately climbed on top for a nap.
Our finished chair had a back pillow and two small accent pillows.
It was an easy project to do and I had fun working with my daughter. She loved the chair and couldn't wait to play with it!
