Central Square Chair Sale: 10 Hours

[click image to enlarge]

I created the lip you see around the seat of the chair by rolling strips of cotton in burlap and stapling them to the frame. These rolls are designed to hold in the padding, as well as create a rounded edge once the fabric is added. Cotton goes down before the foam to create a desired shape, as well as provide extra padding. Here I used two layers of cotton to raise the center of the chair back. It's so primitive looking, but I guess it's how the pros still do it!

  1. I was so confused before, I thought that bottom part was the seat and the wrapped burlap part was the back, which was why I must have been so confusing last night when I was asking you questions on the phone!
