I love these. I almost want to go buy some of these chairs so I can cover them! But I'll 'canvas' all my friends first.

I have to say, thats a particularly cool project. And its great that the entire thing is open source! I also plead that you would make a full instructable on this! (you can actually upload the PDF files to the instructable also)

Oooh thank you! I didn't know that I could upload PDF here! But I did make a promo video for it that's already in instructables.

Thanks! It doesn't take very long since we used very bulky yarn. The "shoe" one is called Lace It Up and only took me over a week.
