After the cats ripped my ALSEDA stool apart, I was wondering how to repair it. Then I started crocheting with VHS video-tapes and the inspration struck!
I took the rest of the banana leaf cover off – you’ll need strong scissors for the radial spikes – I used poultry scissors. Finally I was left with the black steel frame. Since the banana leaves are thicker than a video-tape “blanket” I sewed a layer of foam rubber onto the seating. Then crocheted a “blanket” in rounds and connected it to the seating. The sides were covered with a long band, that I crocheted directly to the frame.
This is a picture from underneath which shows the frame and the layer of foam.
