New Cushion and Tutorial

I bought myself a new Papasan chair a couple of weeks ago.  I found great deals on everything.  I went ahead and bought the stool, however the cushion was $20 and was a boring solid grey color.  I knew I had material leftover from when I recovered my bench.
Sorry about the awful photo
It was super easy to make.  First I traced around the stool using newspaper.  I put my finger between the sharpie to make the circle bigger since I wanted a 1/2 inch seam.
I pinned the newspaper to the fabric and cut two pieces at the same time.
I sewed a half inch seam around the fabric that is right sides together.
Be sure to leave a gap so that you can turn the fabric right side out and stuff it.
Clip the seams, be sure not to clip the thread.  This helps the seams to lay flat when turned.
I had to pull stuffing out of every box of fabric I could find.  I found stuffing everywhere!  After you stuff it, be sure to sew up the opening.  It's not a perfect circle and the button is not centered, but I still like it.  
Cupcake loves it!  It took her about five minutes to claim it.
Muffin is in the chair, Cupcake on the stool, Custard in the red chair.
