Almost 6 years ago, I made this:

We have since given away the rocking chair, but kept the footstool.  That poor floral cover has not held up to the test of time, so, with my infant twins in bed by 7:30 the past two nights (WIN!), I set to work making a new cover.  It's a bootleg version of the Amy Butler gumdrop pouf, or a Moroccan pouf, but altered to be only a slip cover, not a cushion by itself.  I used Ikea fabric (matches the twins' nursery).

What a lovely fabric you've chosen, calming. I love the way you've got sooo much use out of it.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Nice work.  The doggie loves it as well, which makes it doubly fantastic. 

God doesn't send people to hell.  He simply honors their choice.
