I bought a wingback chair with matching ottoman and a big bag of pink and red yarn at Salvation Army last spring for $14.00. I had a plan; I would cover them completely with fuzzy balls (also known as pom-poms) hand made entirely from salvaged thrift store yarn. I estimated it would take me a couple more skeins of yarn and a productive weekend.
200 skeins of yarn (some unfortunately bought new as the exhibition deadline loomed), a gaggle of supportive (if not bemused) friends and 3 cans of 3M Orange super adhesive spray later; the fuzzy ball chair is finished.
It turned out to be way more functional than I ever imagined it would be (those balls are seriously adhered) and to clean it one could just trim off a bit of the yarn or replace a ball here and there as needed.
If I were to do it again (no, no, I am not doing it again) I would make all the balls first and lay out a more cohesive pattern. I thought I had enough balls on four separate occasions and went to town adhering only to discover that I again, needed more yarn.
