Rollie Pollie

Doesn't every 1.5 year old need a ball chair that is almost as tall as they are and weighs half as much as they do?  Yeah, I thought so, too.  I found this pattern for a Rollie Pollie chair and knew I had to make one for Little H.  She loves chairs. She loves to sit on random objects. She loves balls.  I love this chartreuse fabric and needed a reason to buy some!  The pattern was pretty easy to piece together. The directions were clear.  And the chair came together pretty quickly!  The only real obstacle along the way was having enough filling.  I used the two bags of fiberfill I had on hand and realized that it was going to take A LOT more.  Off the fabric store I went.  I came home with a 5 lb. box of fiberfill, stuffed it, and realized I was going to need even more fiberfill!  After another trip to the store to purchase another 5 lb. box I had enough! (I didn't use all of the second box.)  

She doesn't quite LOVE the chair, yet, but I think that's just because she has a heck of a time trying to get on it without falling.  It's just a wee bit big, yet.  I guess maybe I should have made the small size......

  1. This is very cool! I just may try it. Thanks for sharing. Also, the pictures in the snow are precious. I'm a little jealous because we rarely get snow here. She's looking like such a big girl now!
