By stuffing knitted tubing with wadding, you can make a boring old stool as gorgeous as this one! METHOD: Sew three equal-length pieces of knitted tubing together at one end. The length of the pieces depends on the size of the object you are covering. Stuff the pieces with wadding. Tip! Thread the knitted tubing over an empty paper towel roll to make it much easier to stuff. Braid the three pieces together and sew the ends together. Now you have a seat for the stool!
