This pattern will NOT fit the IKEA Stool.
Finished size of footstool is 16″ x 16″ x 15″ which includes feet that are 6″ high. This is the pattern only for a footstool.
This is a great design that works in many color plans. Build the footstool body using the construction instructions.
This pattern is designed by Katherine Porter.
Make your own rug hooked footstoolI have several rug hooking footstool patterns available. I am posting complete instructions (videos are still being edited) on how to build your own using simple 2x4s, plywood and foam. There is a complete cutting diagram for the wood and the foam. I also have instructions on how to finish your hooking so you can complete your rug hooked footstool. [ Here are the list of instructions available so far:
- Footstool Construction Material List
- Footstool Feet - Where to Get Them
- Footstool Feet - Staining
- Build the Box
- Adding the foam
- Preparing the Backing
- Sewing up the Sides
- Upholstery and Finishing Touches
These instructions are still a rough draft. If you have any questions be sure to ask. I will be adding the videos and updates as I can. Be sure to visit again before you dig into your project so you have the latest information. A PDF with all the instructions in one place will be available for download once I have everything written up and finalized. It is not ready yet.
This was a color plan I developed for a student. It is just a printout from the computer colored in with watercolor paints. I think the paint works better than colored pencils because you can get the really dark colors with the paint.
I am so happy to say that I have finished both the pocketful footstool and the rose scroll footstool. I absolutely love them.
Thank-You Cindi for a fantastic pattern and for great how-to instructions. I enjoyed Hooking and putting these two items together and now displaying them in my home!
