Footstool ....

cover....make over (crochet)

This makeover was done with cotton yarn that I have collected from the thrift stores.  The original cover (above right) has nice indian embroidery work with mirrors, but the colour is quite pale.( for my liking) I have had it for few years now, and finally I thought of giving it a new look with crocheting.

I am pleased with my attempt, and I am loving the new colours too :)

a happy Easter and Passover  weekend!!

Thank you for taking time to stop by,

till next time,


  1. Really gorgeous makeover Gaia! I love the new colour scheme for the footstool - much more cheerful :) :) Happy Easter!

  2. Good morning Gaia! I love the new look for your cute footstool! Much less serious than the original cover. I'm glad you had enough yarn to complete it. I like using Bernat cotton yarn for some of my little projects too since I can pick up a couple of balls for only a few dollars when it's on sale at Michael's (I've not seen it in the thrift store). Have a great week :)

  3. Oh, very pretty make-over. The colours are perfect. Love it!

  4. A new and improved, bright and cheery footstool! Also like the tassels :)
