But unfortunately it was a burnt orange velvet from the 70's palette! ECH
Luckily, footstools are a snap to recover or sew a quick slip cover for.
Since I have kitty cats who sleep on everything, I always slip cover my furniture for ease of laundering.
A slip cover for this was a no brainer.
I wanted something simple but with some feminine gathering, even though I was using one of my more masculine stripe designs, SIGNE STRIPE in pale blueberry and white.
I had it printed on the linen cotton canvas, which sews well and launders well too!
It turned a nicely made, but very ugly footstool into something I can proudly place in any room in my home for use.
Did I mention my entire house is this shade of blue so anything I slip cover will fit in, in any room, as needed!
Saves money and also allows you to have functional, pretty furniture without cluttering up a small cottage with too many pieces.

|Adding readymade piping. I know color is a bit off but they also somehow worked well together and it saved me time, which is precious to me nowadays.|
|Piping in place, all I had to do is hem the gathered skirt.|
|Simple readymade piping and a gently gathered skirt did the trick.|
