Materials for Stool Cover:

Directions for Stool Cover:

1 square 18in. x 16in.

  2 rectangles 16in. x 7in.

 2 rectangles  18in. x 7in.

Note: Since plywood measures 16in. x 14in. I have added extra inches for sewing. After sewing, the stool cover dimensions will be 16in.(length) x 14in.(width) x 4in.(height).

 2. Using a marker and ruler, draw a 16in. x 14 in. square on the 18in. x 16in. square. Note: The drawn square will be used as a sewing guide.


 3. Place a rectangle on top of the square and sew a straight line by using the drawn square as a guide.
