First, prepare the fabric piece for the upper base (sitting area) of the Footstool. Place the printed fabric piece on the sitting area. Straighten it with straight pins keeping the perfect grasp and make sure that the upper base (sitting area) of the footstool remains smooth-edged.

Take the measurements from the sitting base to the bottom edge of the footstool (leave 4-5 inches from the bottom of the stool).

In that process you will get the all the measures of footstool including the width.  Now cut the digital printed fabric using scissors with the recorded measurement.

Note: Leave 2 to 3 inches of the printed fabric ahead of the stapled edges of the actual measurement. This process will give you fabric to grip at the time of stapling.

4.    Stitch the Fabric

Take both the fabric pieces - the upper base printed fabric piece and the side base printed fabric piece. Draw the stitching marks with the help of chalk on both fabrics after taking the proper measurements.

Lay both the digital printed fabrics on their back side, join them together appropriately, and give it a nice circular stitch with the help of a sewing machine. Keep the stitching length on the printed fabric shorter as it will make a smoother, tighter, and secure seam.
