I've never crocheted before in my life, but after seeing this charming stool I've got a serious desire to learn how!
While you're thinking about what else you could cover in yarn, let's see what we'll need to create this whimsical stool.
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!
