Union Jack (Flag!) Stool redo

I've been looking at this stool for a while now...
Poor thing. it sits in our living room, being sat on by Mr. B while he writes his music, looking all forlorn with its 'I'm a reject from a 70's alpine ski lodge' polar fleece cover, that has twisted over time so it's not even straight lol!

So I decided it was time for a change. 

Now, if you follow my blog, you may remember having seen these pictures
and the Union Jack cushion covers... (on the left of this pic - we have 2 of them!)

so I thought I'd go with the Union Flag theme (did you know it's only supposed to be called a Union Jack if it's flying off a ship? I'm a fund of useless information lol!) after seeing this one made by Catherine at OriginalStitch. Awesome, huh?
I picked my fabric, and winging it as is usually my way, I set to work! I decided on a 'shabby chic' type look, with loose threads, uneven stitching etc as that's what I like! it's not just because I'm really bad....ha ha ha! 




 and here's the finished item....I love it! 
Now, what else can I Union flag-ify.......?????

Thanks for looking!

Getting an early start...

Well for some reason, (and trust me, this NEVER happens!), I'm making an early start on things for that most dreaded of C-words... CHRI...
