booster seat

I made Ella her very own booster seat from the book One-Yard Wonders.

I cut two squares out of an oilcloth and sewed them to form a booster seat,

then I put a foam piece inside and filled it with 3 pounds of buckwheat hulls.

Ella helped me clean up the buckwheat hulls that we spilled.

That booster seat is SOOO cute!! My daughter is old enough now that she doesn't need one, but -don't laugh - my 93-year-old grandmother might need one. She has to have a booster seat in order to reach the table, and right now it's just a phone book in a tote bag. She would be so proud to have one made out of pretty fabric!

First of all, where did you get such FABULOUS oilcloth?? I want it. Lots of it.

okay, so my last comment sounded a little funny at the end - I moved that last paragraph from the front of the comment to the bottom but forgot to delete the "first of all". I'm a dork. :)

thanks! And yes, I've scoured the internet for cool oilcloth and I've never seen that print before!
