Lego in­spires stool cre­ation

Central and North Burnett Times - - 2015 BIGGENDEN SHOW - Erica Murree erica.murree@cnbtimes.com.au

A HAND-ap­pliqued foot stool, fea­tur­ing trac­tors and cars, caught the eye of many Biggen­den Show-go­ers.

For cre­ator Ju­lia Young, the idea for a stool came when grand­son Dust­dan asked her to play Lego with him.

“There were no chairs in his room so I had to sit on the floor,” she said.

“With this in mind I thought I’d make him his own per­son­alised foot stool.

“What to put on it was easy as he loves trac­tors.”

The cham­pion craft ex­hibitor said for the trac­tor she had to Google to find a de­sign.

“Then I mod­i­fied it,” she said.

“This then took me a week to in­vent the pic­ture.

“The old fash­ioned car along with a car and camper was easy to ac­cess.”

Mrs Young said she had fun.

“It was a chal­lenge,” she said. “But I didn’t think I’d ever get it fin­ished in time for the show.”

But what was in­side the foot­stool sur­prised those who asked – four cater­ing sized cof­fee tins.

Mrs Young has made foot stools in the past but used seven smaller cof­fee tins.

Ev­ery­one knows what will be in Dust­dan’s for his third birth­day in July.

JUST FOR DUST­DAN: Ju­lia Young made this foot­stool for her grand­son Dust­dan af­ter she had to sit on the floor to play Lego with him.
