First to felt the sweater, I placed it in a pillow case & washed it in hot water. Then I hung it to dry. Next I painted the chair black to match the rest of our dinning set. I then removed the wood base from the chair & stapled some left over batting to it.
Then stretching the sweater over the batting I began to staple it on top of the batting.
Once secured, I then cut away the extra fabric.
Next I screwed the seat back on to the chair frame & done!
