Rocking Chair Makeover…
My dad fixed up an old rocking chair for Elliott’s nursery before she was born. I have loved having it to nurse her in, to rock her to sleep, but it needed some light padding. I had been sitting on a old folded blanket and it would slide and shift, making the rocking experience less than ideal.
I finally finished these tie on patchwork pads. They work great, are just the right about of padding, and are bright and cheery, like Elliott’s room.
I used mostly fat quarters, 10” fun squares from my local quilting store, and scraps I had laying around from the Christmas ornaments I made.
I covered the back of each pad in a fun blue print, so if I want to change the look, I can just flip them over and tie them back on.
The ties are just bias tapes sewn closed from the same material as the backing fabric.
Now I can sit a bit more comfortably in an already comfy rocker, no more adjusting or sliding around!
