Dirty old footstool

An ugly sunday. Outside rain, recovering from illness. Boooring. Then my daughter starts to complain "Mom, i don´t know what i will dooooo".
So asked her if she could help me refreshing that dirty old footstool. I gave her a piece of thick white cotton, teared out from an old sheet, and some textile-pencils. Just draw as you like it, i said.
In the meantime i teared of the old cover, put it on a new fabric, draw the outside lines to make a perfect copy and sew the corners together. Then we putted the drawing on a piece of Vliesofix which you can iron on at both sides.
A little zigzag around and now just staple. The rusult is a creative sunday-afternoon and a cheery new footstool!
