Isn't that a super fun word? Pouf?
It's also a fun little accent piece. As promised here, I want to give you the details about the pouf I made for my girls a few months ago.
I got the canvas fabric at Hancock's (I think) and was surprised that Michael loved it! He actually wanted me to use this fabric in a couple other places as well. He liked it much better than some of the other fabrics I've chosen for things lately...like the fabric I chose to upholster this cushion I made for our basement bench.
The rest of the little pouf is stuffed with some old blankets, fabric scraps, and even a couple old teddy bears that were no longer played with. Then I filled in the open spaces with a bag of fiberfill. All the directions are the in the tutorial link above. They even suggest using old clothing to stuff it.
The tutorial shows you how to do a cute decorative stitch around the whole pouf to give it detail. I started doing the stitching and this canvas fabric is so thick that my hands went numb after stitching for a while and I gave up on that idea once the top octagon shape was stitched in place.
Let me know if you make a pouf too. I'd love to see it!
