Ive been using this chair since 2009, and had this fabric in my stash since 2010. In 2013 I decided to put the two together, but I only got around to it in January 2014. It took about 90 minutes.


before:

The fabric is organic cotton canvas, and I used almost all of it for this project. The remaining pieces went to my mom, so this was a very successful stash-busting project.

That's so pretty.  I love the fabric.  Impressed that it took you less than 2 hours to do.

Such an improvement! It seems to fit a lot better in your bright office. That fabric is great. About how much yardage did this take?

2 yards total, 60" wide bolt, with enough left over for a pillow or tote bag or whatever my mom makes.
