Make a pouf ottoman. The materials you'll need are one yard, each of two or three decor fabrics: I'm using Bella velvet and otter, grey premier, prints, Giri, saffron, yellow and suave l, Millcreek, Dawkins, titanium scissors or a rotary cutter and mat a ruler. A fabric marker thread pins a hand sewing needle and for the filling scrap fabric and stuffing or batting this poof is going to be a 17-inch cube measure in cut pieces for the top and bottom that are 21 inches square. I'm using upholstery velvet here, but you can use any decor fabric, also cut four strips that are 4 by 15 inches. These will wrap around the corners to create a border around each side.
Finally, cut four pieces that are 15 by 15 inches each for the sides. I'm going to use two different fabrics for this: I'm going to sew the corners on the top and bottom pieces, so the fabric wraps around the edges, one and a half inches on the back of the fabric mark two lines that form a two inch square in Each corner: that's one and a half inches, plus half an inch for the seam allowance fold, the fabric in half diagonally. So the lines match up on both sides. So, on the line backstitching at the beginning and end, the stitching should be on or near the line on the other side, to cut off the extra fabric and repeat for the rest of the corners on both the top and bottom pieces. Next, I'm going to sew all the border and side pieces together place a border and square panel together with right sides facing and sew down the length with a half inch. Seam allowance continues sewing the pieces together, alternating between border and side pieces once they're in one long strip sew the ends together to close the loop. You then sew the top piece to the sides line them up with right sides facing so the corners fall in the middle of the border pieces and pin you so all the way around backstitching at the beginning and end when you come to a seam open.
It up before sewing over it do the same for the seams on the bottom fabric, repeat for the bottom piece, but leave a gap of about 12 inches in the middle of one of the sides. Turn the piece right-side out and poke out the corners fill the pouf with scrap fabric, it's best to start with batting stuffing or a pillow form. So the top is soft and smooth. I'm using an 18 inch. Pillow then fill the rest with a fabric you have around. Like old, towels or sheets, you use batting or stuffing around the sides and corners to fill out the pouf. If you want the pouf to be softer like a floor pillow, you can fill it with just stuffing instead or you can get beanbag Ville fold. The edges in half an inch and hand sew the opening with a hidden stitch.
