What do you give a one year old that has everything on their birthday (well, who has 3 older brothers with lots of toys)? A custom comfy chair! When I first saw the Kid’s Comfy Chair from the latest One-Yard Wonders book, I knew this was something that I would eventually want to make (I’m guessing Easton is way too big for this seat). Instead of using book, I knew this was something that I would eventually want to make (I’m guessing Easton is way too big for this seat). Instead of using the suggested corduroy, I’ve decided to use a heavyweight denim on the seat, sides and back of the chair and a patchwork cotton for the arm, just to break up all that blue. Best of all, I’m personalizing the back! I went ahead and used one of my my machine‘s built in embroidery fonts (and modified by arching it all in my machine – so easy) and some variegated thread that matched a lot of the colors of the patchwork material. Now that the name is embroidered, I plan on centering it on the front pattern piece, then cut the pieces from the fabric (this way I make sure I like it’s placement). Let’s hope this sews up quickly, though – I have until the weekend to get it done!
