So I was totally pumped about this challenge when it came up because I was already planning on redoing my old sewing chair....I had a few ideas but at the last minute I wasn't happy with any of them.  So I gave up on it....until I came to my senses and realized I needed to do what I love which is plushies!  So I made my old hard sewing chair into a soft (I added foam) furry plushie chair, claws, teeth and all!  Thanks for looking and don't forget to vote!  Smiley



my chair before I started---boring plain white



my monster chair!  so furry and wonderful!



a detail of the teeth and leg and foot....I just love the feet I think its my favorite part! (oh and awesome side note...I can still roll it around!  I made the feet so the wheels come through!)



monster chair next to my sewing machine....maybe I need to do something with that yardsale desk........

OH I almost forgot my inspiration was the chair from the pee wee herman show.....I cant remember her name.....This challenge was so much fun!  I think I need to cover my couch in fur next!

How funky and fun! Although I don't like the look he's giving your machine... like he wants to eat it...  Cheesy

Well, this made me chuckle right out loud.  What a great sense of humor you have, and yes, you absolutely must do something to the desk to make them a pair...at least matching paint or something, don't you think?  You did such a nice job on the chair, it looks like you really took some time to make all the details so special.

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

I love how your chair is skeptically eying your sewing machine.

Great job, it reminds me of my recon from the Challenge 23.  Don't you just love reconning items with some great imagination. Anyway, here is my link to my old post and again, great job on yours.

I love the scrunchy legs and feet particular too.
