While you're thinking about what else you could cover in yarn, let's see what we'll need to create this whimsical stool.

Materials:

Kristin explains she first crocheted long tubes to cover the stool legs and then created the freeform birds.  After sewing and crocheting the critters together to create a circle, she crocheted a piece around them big enough to cover the seat of the stool.  Next, she cut a piece of foam to match the size of the seat and wrapped the crocheted cover over the top.  Presto!  A cute and cozy upgrade!

So, have you thought of what else you'd give the crochet treatment to?  A planter?  A side table?  Let's brainstorm!
