At the end of the school year, the art seniors at my school get to paint their own chair so they will be remembered for years to come by the bottoms of their fellows.  I decided to do something a little bit different and upholster one of our wooden school chairs.  I grabbed one that was partially carved into that noone could use for painting and set to work.

and here was the 80s magenta prom dress my boyfriend wore for our English class video:


I sewed the lips first, then attached teeth made of scrap canvas.  The tongue was next, made from scrap neon pink spandex that I think we used to make my princess dress in 4th grade. Finally, I stapled it all to the chair with great enthusiasm. 

The end result:
