This weeny footstool has sat in my bathroom for about a decade, it really is tiny, visiting children often try to sit on it and my own kids have even tried to use it as a step stool for cleaning their teeth but to no avail.
I bought it in a charity shop with a view to doing something with it and after all these years I finally did
I made it into a toadstool.
I covered the seat with foam and a few layers of wadding, stretched over a remnant of red cotton I had in my stash and staple-gunned it to the underside. I glued a length of red ribbon around to cover the unsightly staples and then turned my attention to the decoration. I have so many vintage buttons just sitting doing now't in my button box that I thought I'd showcase some of the white ones as the spots atop the toadstool. Cute as a button!
