After I made the rug I kept on eyeing my blue chair thinking, "there's gotta be a way to apply the friendship bracelet process" and it worked out like a charm! In fact, it's a bit easier to work with a chair than a rug because you can work directly from the spokes. This DIY was featured on design*sponge yesterday (as was a reference to my oversized paper flowers by Ruche).
Materials: 2 sets of 8 pieces of fabric (can be repeated colors), needle, thread, scissors
Step 1: Pair the colors together and start by tying two around the first spoke.
Step 2: Continue pairing and tying the colors until you get to the middle.
Step 3: Start from the opposite side and work in using the same color order.
Step 4: Begin the friendship bracelet process with the number four. These next few steps are the same as the rug. Check out the instructions here.
Step 5: When you get to the end cut off the ends and stitch them up with a needle and thread.
Step 6: Tuck the beginning ends into the cushion.
