Previously I used a large nice office chair at my sewing table, because well, my sewing table was also my computer table. I could sit all day at this desk going back and forth from computer to sewing machine because the chair was so comfy. It was also kind of big for the space we have. So I found a smaller chair for sale in my neighborhood and picked it up and it worked great.
It looked a lot like this. Simple, basic, no bells or whistles. Just a basic chair for sewing. I had also looked at places like JoAnn Fabrics for a sewing chair, but they wanted $100 or more, and I found mine for $10. It’s not too much to look at being all black, but it was exactly what I was looking for. Until one day I decided to take it apart and put a prettier fabric on it. During C1’s nap, I sat and pulled out staples and pulled the whole thing apart. I then used the pieces as patterns, cut out of my new fabric, and started stapling it back together. The padding didn’t look so good, so I also added some scrap batting layers to help pad it up again.
This is what it looks like now and I love it! Calming and peaceful and helps me feel more creative.
