Le petit Monsieur in my life was the oh-so-happy recipient of a cute wooden desk I had found on the roadside recently. I figured he needed his very own personalized chair to go with it.
I asked him to choose which Les Monsieur fabric he would like me to use (I was thinking just one piece), and my sometimes very vague boy described what you see below in such specific detail, I had to oblige. The centre print is Castle Blocks, the more open ground green is Monsieur Blocks, and the orange and white diagonal stripes are a fine cut of this Tire Treads chevron, all in the Soft Top colour way.
It was a really simple project. I removed the old upholstery fabric and used that as my basic template. I cut my strips of fabric (keeping in mind 1/2″ seam allowances), trying to keep the monsieur’s in the prints centred. I stitched them together, added a fresh layer of batting over the existing seat foam, pulled tightly on the fabric for a nice smooth surface and stapled away underneath.
I then had to add a little something extra, because sometimes more is more. I was inspired by this gorgeous chair I had seen on Pinterest. A word of warning … keeping all that yarn smooth and tight while wrapping … well, that’s why I stopped where I did.
Oh, and the castle painting in the top photo is one I did for Max 2 Summers ago, which was also partial inspiration for the fabric collection.
