2.  These are the three “Inner design” panels. Lightly glue each of the panels using a hot glue gun onto the background   fabric which is the same white fabric that I stitched all the designs, notice in the photo above you do not cut the panels close to the stitched edges.

 

3.  Satin stitch each of the panels down using the same coloured thread as you used in each of the panels as you can   see in the photo above

8. Stitch cording to the top of all the panels

9.  Straight stitch around the design this gives a base to work from when stitching all the “Tradition” panels to the top

10.  Pin and hand stitch the top and side together, this may take a bit of manoeuvring and may be a bit fiddly, I had to undo and redo a couple of times as fabric and stitching can vary.

11. First insert a zipper into fabric

12.  Lay the top of the foot stool over the fabric and roughly draw the circle

13.  Cut around leaving enough room for variances as shown in the photo above

14.  Stitch to the base of all the “Tradition” panels a cording

15.  Before attaching the base panel to the “Tradition” panels make sure you have your zipper open also notice I used a darker colour for the base as the white shows the dirt

16.  Pin and hand stitch base to the panels then machine stitch base to the panels
