Monday Made It!

Real talk:  I don't have anything current for a Monday Made It.  I'm one week into summer break, folks...  We've napped, played, had fun, and spent time together.  I have lots of time to devote to crafting, and I can't wait to share those things with you!

Last summer, my mom gave me an old, nasty, half broken office chair for my classroom.  Knowing that I didn't have one, I saw this donation as an opportunity.  

Here is the list of things I needed to make the end product:
*High temp hot glue or fabric glue
*1-2 yards (depending on how careful you are) of fabric of your choice
*Patience.  And lots of it.

To start, I measured the outline of both the back and the seat of the office chair.  Since I chose chevron fabric, it was a tad difficult to line up the zig zags so they were straight.  This is where the patience comes in.

Then, cut the pattern and glue to the chair.

Here is the end result:

There was one little area at the top that bulged a little, but it was easily fixed.  I love my fancy chair!

This is an oldie, but a goodie.  I made this precious banner for my classroom last summer.  The blue was so pretty, but my friend Jena created digital papers that matched my classroom colors perfectly.  So, of course I had to redo them!  These are laminated and ready to create into a sweet little banner.  

You can check out both the blue version and the colorful version in my TPT store!

I also created the most adorable number line to go with my classroom colors.  Check it out here.


  1. So cute! You did a nice job :)


  2. Love your chair!!!! It looks awesome.
    Was it easy?
    I really need to haul mine home and do the same.


  3. The chair is great! I need to try that on the chair that I use at my desk at home. I think chevron was a good choice, too! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Your chair turned out great. I recovered mine a couple months ago, but I'm not the best seamstress. (The back needed a slip cover.) As soon as I get my mom to help me fix it, I'll have to post pics.
