Floor pillows, poufs, and ottomans have all been everywhere. I've had my eye on quite a few, but didn't want to shell out $120 on one. I have a great little reading area in our master bedroom, but needed a foot rest. I found a great tutorial from Decorating the Dorchester Way on how to make the pouf.
My Grandma and I both had poly-fil. I had some leftover bean bag stuffing as well. I think I ended up buying two bags of poly-fil to complete the pouf. It took a ton of stuffing.
I decided that I had to have a liner so I could take the cover off easily and wash it. The liner was a pain the the butt and didn't end up working the way I had hoped.
It doesn't look like I did much sewing, but I really did. Grandma did the corners and I did all the straight seams. We also put a zipper in the cover.
So, I took it home and this is what happened.
Overall, the project was $23. Huge Savings. I love the end result.
This was after I had vacuumed twice already. Those little bean bag balls are crazy!
