Couldn't wait to build this when I saw the post go up- I bought supplies right away! Got this chair done throughout one Saturday. The sewing part took the longest (I've only used sewing machines maybe 4 times in my life! I got one for Christmas 2 years ago.. thought maybe it was time to break it in!!) Got the fabric on sale at Joann's for $8 and spent about $8 on cedar 1x2's. Did the entire project with very little help- I am quite proud of myself! I am pretty excited that I was able to make the fabric sling portion!

My 2 year old was SUPER excited about this chair... he got so upset waiting for me to get the sling put in and was crying until it was ready for him to sit in! We had a movie night in the backyard and set up this chair under our tent canopy. He loved it!
