This was a present for my little nieces 1st birthday. I roughed out the pattern on some paper first from an image off google and then made a template. Then I used a flush trim bit to cut out each side. My girlfriend did the painting and my mum covered the seat for me. My niece loved it and it was a pretty simple project (one of my first). There is enough slope on the bottom that means she can’t tip it over with her body weight. There is also two lengths of dowel. One is a handle and the other is down the bottom for her feet to rest on. If I were to make it again I would have used better quality Ply (I think it was CD). I also would have done some edging work with a router to round things over better.
