    Two hours and seven juice cans got me a new footstool and a creative reuse/recycle lesson for my homeschooled second grader. I even have enough of these fabrics leftover to make some throw pillows to go with my new earth tone green living room furniture. I know it's not quilting but I just finished a large quilt top and needed a daybreak before I started to quilt the layers.

    It's still drying so there's some pins holding the fringe in place as the fabric glue dried.

    I am still admiring this creativity. Do you have a bottom panel on this? Did you have to do a lot of hand stitching!

    You could use the inside to store stuff too! I love it! My grandma had a footstool that had a hinged lid and she kept toys in it for the little ones.

    How clever! And it is really sharp looking too. I really like that and am also very eager to know how you did it.

    That is extremely cool! Is it too low though for a foot rest? I should make one of those spackling bucket ones... I'm sure I can find a tutorial or two for those :)

    I love the colors you used too... :)

    Very nice. I am in the process of making one too but it is taking more than 7 hours! LOL. But I will get it done and will put up pictures--some day when I am finished.

    Boy does this bring back memories. My Grandma used to make these stools for us when we were young..(very long time ago about 1955). She also used the smaller cans that vegetables came in. So, we had two different sizes. She covered the cans with old nylon stockings and then with fabric, sewed them together and used some type of padding for the tops before she covered it with fabric. They were very sturdy!

    Wow! I remember making one of those in vocational Bible school about 40+ years ago. Mine didn't look quite as elegant.
