Kids Teddy Bear Stool Cover Project

Level: Intermediate


  • Plain stool (we used a stool sized 28cm diameter by 20cm high)
  • Petra Upholstery in mushroom colour, Sunny Stripe Hasina Fabric.
  • Yarns for embroidery or any fabrics you choose to make the face elements.
  • Matching thread.
  • Cord (any kind strong enough to use as a drawstring to tie at the bottom of the stool).


Step 1 - Petra Upholstery in mushroom colour cut 1 piece 95 x 30cm to make the gusset - Panel 1.

Step 2 - Sunny Stripe Hasina Fabric, cut 1 piece 33cm Diameter round shape to make Panel 2.

Step 3 - Cut Panels in both Petra upholstery & Sunny Hasina as for the below patterns.

Panel 3 - Cut 2pcs x Ear Panels in Petra Mushroom fabric as per pattern 1.

Panel 4 - Cut 2pcs x Ear Panel in Sunny Hasina Fabric as per pattern 2.

Step 4 - On the Petra Upholstery Fabric Panel 1, Embroider the face elements as per our image or create the face from fabric cut outs and sew in place.

Step 5 - Take 1x Panel 3 and stitch edges all around 1x Panel 4 to create a piped border as per our image. Repeat for the Second ear then stitch both ears above the Eyes on panel 1 gusset.

Step 6 - Wrap Panel 1 gusset (inside out) around the stool with open ends together and stitch closed to fit.

Step 7 - Stitch Panel 2, Sunny Hasina fabric to attach to the top of the Panel 1 Gusset.

Step 8 - Remove the cover from the stool. Fold the bottom edge of the gusset and stitch with the cord inside to create a drawstring channel. Keep a small opening and leave the 2 ends of the drawstring out so these can be tied together. Turn the cover in the right way, place on the stool and tighten the drawstring the fit.
