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.
