11  Mushroom Stool Tutorial in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by jennilocker on: March 03, 2011 07:33:14 AM

I was totally inspired by https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=367900.0 this awesome stool.  I wanted to make one for a swap but I couldn't find a log...I had some offers from a thousand miles away for logs (if I drove to get them) but instead I went to Michael's and found these cute little foot stools.  I thought they would be perfect and MUCH easier to ship. They were unfinished wood and their size make a perfect footstool or a child's stool.

First thing was to paint the base.

Then I took hotglue and attached foam around the edge of the top.  Then I filled in the center with foam.

Then I layed out my fabric and turned the stool upside down.  Using a staple gun I held the fabric taut and stapled every inch or so, pleating the fabric along the way.

Viola! You have a mushroom foot stool!

I received from Aidenromantic on Friday!!  She sent a wonderful package of felt food for Zoe!

I LOVE the poptart...and though you can't tell it from the picture it has this glittery string in the felt and it just sparkles so pretty!!  Zoe was super excited and I had to literally snap a fast pic while her dad held her because she was so excited to play with everything!  We ate a LOT of fish and eggs over the weekend!! Tee hee!

Thanks so much Aidenromantic!!  Your package was LOVED!

I received from sarahj2001 on Friday!! She sent me the most beautiful package ever!!

She has mad skills in the knitting department!!

Here is the purse I had wisted

And here is the purse I got from Sarah!!

Didn't she do an AMAZING job!!!! MY boyfriend was SUPER impressed and actually talked about the purse all weekend.  Rarely does he get impressed with crafts so that is a huge honor! LOL!

Now in that pic you can see the wisted owl handwarmers that I believe are my most favorite things ever...she did such a good job on those and I was NOT expecting something so nice to be included as an extra!

Here is a shot of everything togetherL

You can see that she also included:

1. Smarties...mmmmmm
2. Burts Bees bath soak
3. Homemade chapstick
4.a cute little credit card wallet
5. a straight off my wist paperweight with a dandelion!! LOVE IT!!

Thank you so much Sarah! I loved everything!!

I received from MissingWillow on Friday and let me tell you how AWESOME my package was!!  She sent a beautiful patchwork skirt that fit like a glove! The colors and fabric choices were perfect and you can tell how much time and effort went into making this...thank you SO much!

Now let me say I had several action shots taken but in all of them my face decided that it should look exceptionally scary and thus distracted from the skirts beauty.  I felt that it was unfair to include these in my post.  So even though I hate pictures of skirts just laying on the floor looking lonely it is only as a service to you, my fellow Craftsters that I do this.

MissingWillow if you have better shots PLEASE post them so everyone can see just how wonderful my skirt is!

And a shot of our house guest (hopefully newest resident) checking out MissingWillows AWESOME craftsmanship.

Thank you SO much MissingWillow!  You were a wonderful and thoughtful partner...well you were just AWESOME! Grin
