My hands-down winner for the day was a really cute footstool for THREE ENGLISH POUNDS! The most exciting part for me was I've had a makeover project on the back burner for ages; just waiting for the perfect footstool to try it on!

The "before" shots:
Alice was the one who realised the original footstool cover was attached with velcro- which certainly made re-covering it a lot easier. For the biscuit design on the top, I copied this free-hand illustration; I liked the fact that it's not symmetrical.
Ok, here goes- the "after" shots (eep!). Please excuse terrible photo quality.
It's far from perfect, despite my best sewing efforts, but I had a lot of fun making it :) Now I need to find a round footstool for £2.50 so I can make a Jammy Dodger....
