Foot Stool Creations

I collect little footstools, I have a few too many. So naturally I just want to make more. This little black wicker one is getting over used and honestly it's not too comfortable.  This nice older comforter is a lovely under my tired feet, but far too used for a bed.  I am off to make a foot rest using a twill scrap that I paid 20 bucks for and stuff it with the old comforter.  
I think I might use a few old large scraps of batting and tshirt a to fill it up too. Iam going to do my calculations and see if I can't get two footstool out of the fabric. 

This isn't the first time I've made stools.  Check these awesome ones my dad helped me build about 12 years ago, I love them. I have carted them around through college and across the country. 
Not the best picture but you get the idea. I tie dyed the denim with bleach for the tops and pillows. I adore them, but I need to add more foam so they are more comfy.
