Baby got a brand new chair

Behold! My Chair!

My physio suggested a nursing chair would be good for me as it is a solid structure with good padding and support. I tried out some mucho expensive ones in John Lewis and spent a very happy 10 mins rocking away before noticing the one I liked most was £380. Not going to happen, so online for a cheap replica. One grumpy pooch later, ta da!

Pockets for knitting. Nice touch.

Of course being a cheap knock off the covers are nasty polyester although perfectly fine for now. But naturally I am already planning to recover. Which has made me think about material. I'm going to need a curtain weight cotton and so my mind has turned to Spoonflower. If only there was a UK version. But still, there are some lovely fabrics on there. All of these link back to the creators for ordering. Thousands of other to choose from. I do like those buttons though.

Such an amazing chair naturally needs some accessories. Here are the first:

Except I can't have my new chair with that tatty old ribbon marking these as 'fabric only' so I made a new tag.

Hand embroidered chain stitch on dotty red then zigzagged with some shiny variegated thread and lightly stuffed. Fabric on the back is...naturally, cats.
