Introduction: Rebuilding of a Old Chair

Picture of Rebuilding of a Old Chair

I gave new life to a old, left on the side of the road rattan chair. I crocheted a swirl circle for the top of the seat and a circle for the bottom of the seat and sewed them together. I crocheted circles or put buttons on the small circles on various parts of the chair. I loomed or crocheted a piece and sewed it on some of the stem sections or I wrapped yarn around the stems.

I had been thinking of making one with a seat of chain mail.

Nice fiber art!

Cute! I know that a lot of rattan seats in chairs rot out every year, and they can be purchased seatless for a lot less than it would cost to buy them whole.
