    Once upon a time, they had little lounge chairs, or some kind of chair pin cushions that you could buy at either Joann's or Hancock Fabrics. any idea where I can still get one of these? I thought they were adorable, but by the time I decided to go buy one, they were gone.

    Thanks!!!

    I know that they carried them at Hancock's. Have you checked on-line?

    Did a search on eBay for "chair pin cushion" and got a lot of hits and lots of different styles. Hope this helps. Prices were looking good, too.

    Leota, those are so cute! They remind me of the chairs on all the porches in the South where I grew up. It was so nice to sit out and watch the lightning bugs blinking.

    Those chair pincushions are great! I love those chairs, so comfy and a slight rocking motion. I wish I had seen this earlier and I would have found myself 4 or 8 of those chairs to do up as cushions. Cute.

    oh and that style of chair is now in vogue.... you could pick up a real chair at Home Depot and have matching "chairs"

    Were they lounge chairs or fainting couches? I seem to remember replicas of the old fashioned fainting couches.

    Maybe look in a craft store for doll furniture or in the Barbie section at Walmart and make your own.
