A new recliner chair I made from a tut

This was BIG challange for me. I found the instructions very hard to follow!  My cushions are not according the the tut. I had to make my own style. I had lots of problems fitting it right. It does work to sit upright and recline. Anyway, I am pleased with my first attempt. I used the faux leather from an old vest I got at a thrift store. It was very light and soft and easy to work with.
