Eli’s Rocking Chair

Posted Monday, February 24th, 2014 in Fabrics | Read More

When Bob and I saw our grandson Eli  sitting on an upside down colander to watch TV, we decided to buy him a chair for Christmas.

We found a small green rocking chair that is just the right size for him. The back and seat are made of slates with a small space between each slat. We gave him the chair for Chrismas. The first time he sat in the chair, he put a finger between the slats and said “broke” as he jumped out of the chair. He would not sit on it unless we put a blanket on the seat. Of course grandma knew just what to do…make a chair pad for him.

He loves tractors and I had a few scraps of John Deere fabric left over from his tractor quilt.  I made a pad for the back and the seat with leftover quilt batting for padding. I did not have the chair available when I made the pads but I had taken measurements before giving it to him.  I also had a limited amount of John Deere fabric and was hoping it would be large enough to cover the seat. It turned out to be just the right size.

Here it is with our precious grandson and his teddy bear.
