DIY Upholstered Footstool

My mom has a little spot in her home where she loves to knit but has been wanting to make this spot a bit more comfortable. I had a chair and footstool in my garage which I thought would go well together but needed some sprucing up. So I painted the chair and added a cushion, and today I just finished reupholstering the footstool. Here’s how I did it.

Sew a Kid’s Swim Cover-Up from a Beach Towel

The girls outgrew their old swim cover-ups, and I’d always wanted to make one for them. I finally did it this summer. Here’s how I made a swim cover-up for them, using a beach towel. It’s roomy with a zip at the neck so they can step in and out of it easily, plus there’s a cozy hood and cute little ruffle skirt at the bottom. I was able to save a lot of the finished seams from the towel to make sewing quick, plus I simply used clothing they already owned to make my pattern pieces.
