Here are some pretty easy directions for you to make a hand made foot stool. This is a project I am planning on doing at my school with my third graders. It will be a mixed media experience that will include working with wood and tools ,as well as, fabric and sewing.
My third graders study Northern Africa in Social Studies and I am considering doing this as a cross curricular project and have them print their own patterns on the fabric they use for their stool.
Step 1: Supplies
11.5" X 11.5" wood, (pine or knotty pine)
$ pieces of 6" (pine or poplar) 1.3/4X1.3/4 for the legs
foam 2" cut to 12" X 12"
Fabric 22" X 22"
8 long screws (I use 2.5" wood screws)
Cabots stain (or polystain, 1 step interior wood stain)
upholstery tacks (28)
optional.......spray adhesive, wood glue
