Pattern only. Finished size of footstool is 16" x 16" x 15" high which includes feet that are 6" high.
Notice the possibility of two different backgrounds. Something tone on tone would be elegant. Build the footstool body using the instructions.
I color planned this project with Mary Manning at the 2017 Manistee Rug Camp. I love the soft colors.
This pattern is designed by Katherine Porter. I offer it here to give you more footstool pattern options.
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 pattern is drawn by Katherine Porter. She has decided to draw her patterns on linen only. All the other footstool patterns are available on linen or rug warp.
