Homemade Chair Pads

(The purple one is extra squishy here, it was still fresh when this photo was taken)

Home made chair pads! Hoorah!
I've had these babies on my to do list for the last 3 years, ever since we inherited these free chairs from a flat-mates Church, I have internally moaned about how hard they are. For three years my butts been sore but you can't complain about free things! Instead I vowed that some day I would afford chair pads. But there's something that grinds my gears about paying $20 per cushion.

Instead, 3 years later I finally bought all of the supplies needed for these for a total of $20 and in my baby-prep-fever had them finished after a week of midday naps courtesy of the toddler.

MrMoo likes modern, simple looking things. However, colour makes me very happy. So I went with my happiness over his and chose a different colour for each chair. Heeee :)

I particularly love the long danglies under the chairs, I did them long on purpose :)

Pure happiness (and comfy bums) achieved!

  1. They look awesome - love the colours and the combination, and the danglies (although with a new crawler here, I immediately thought what fun your littlest one will have with those in due course!) xxx

  2. The chairs are pretty cool on their own but I could imagine the butt would get pretty sore. The cushions just add to the funky look. Well done, they look very professional.

  3. they look awesome Sophie - i love the colours too. Don't forget to link in with Leonie and the Matariki craft blog hop linky too x

  4. Ooh they are awesome! I'd do different colours too if it were me! Look at you go girl!

  5. What a good idea! Love the colours very much. x

  6. Te he he, I like that one was 'fresh' haha! The bright colours are awesome! Very pro sewing right there. :)

    I'm missing my machine - it's been a couple weeks away now, my own fault, a story for another space.

  7. love the colour
    love the modern
    and a wise man I know once said a happy wife is a happy life so tell Mr Moo that :D

  8. Yay for comfy bums! Good choice going with different colours- life would be loring if everything was the same :-)
