Patchwork foot stool

I finished knitting the Thanksgiving scarf, and while I ponder the terrors of trying to graft 1×1 ribbing to turn it into a cowl, I moved on to a small sewing project that was less intimidating.

I recently bought a small square foot stool to go with my new bedroom chair.  It didn’t match, but it was inexpensive, which was my main criteria.  I need to be able to put my feet up as I sit reading and knitting.

I rummaged through the box of upholstery scraps I used to make the family room pouf and made a simple patchwork slipcover.

I then ransacked the garage in a futile search for my staple gun before giving up and buying a new one.  Maybe it was left behind in the move?  Did I lend it to my sister?

My corner folding and stapling could use some work, but overall it was a success.  I just need to get some dark brown spray paint for the legs.

It is kid and dog approved anyway.
