This used to my hubby's chair for 6 years. It was solid black with holes worn in at the seat and the arms.

I got batting 50% off and the blue zebra for $5/yard. Two cans of spray paint, about 10,000 staples, and some cursing were involved in making this for my almost 13-yr old step-daughter for x-mas.
She loved it!

I also made her bolster pillow out of a knit skirt. It's stuffed w/ scraps too small to do anything else w/ and most of the insides of a murdered pillow.
She said it was squishy!

Funky! I always admire the skill it must take to upholster something so smoothly. I'm still afraid to tackle it.
