Daisy chair cover


– download template here –

Recycled items

  • Metal or wooden stool with a round seat (I used one with metal legs and a wooden seat)

  • 50 x 50cm padded table protector (one side felt and the other side rubber)

  • White leftover fabric

Also needed

  • Paper, pencil and ruler to draw petal template

  • Sewing machine

  • Staple gun and staples

  • Pen

  • Scissors

  • Embroidery thread and needle


  1. Draw a petal template on a piece of paper and cut it out.

  2. Trace the outlines onto the rubber side of the table protector with a pen.

  3. Cut out about 40 petals using scissors. Place the petals aside while you prepare the seat cover.

  4. Measure and cut a fabric circle with a diameter 10cm larger than the wooden seat of the stool.

  5. Draw a circle 15cm smaller than the diameter of the cut fabric on the fabric. Draw three more circles on the fabric, each one 5cm smaller than the other. These circles are your guidelines for the petal positions.

  6. Start work on the big circle first and secure the petals with pins all around the drawn line.

  7. When you are happy with your petal position, sew the petals to the fabric using the sewing machine. Repeat this process for all the petals on the dotted lines until all the circles are filled with petals.

  8. I sew the last petals to the fabric with a needle and thread for a pretty look.

  9. When you are satisfied with the look of your daisy, fold the edges of the fabric over the edges of the wooden seat and secure it using staples from the staple gun. Your new stool is ready for display.
