Poufs times 3

After sewing my first pouf last year and realizing how easy they REALLY are to make, I made 3 more! In the process of making a Big Boy Room for my son, I decided he needed a reading corner, since he loves to read books.

And what a better way to create a reading corner than throw in a bunch of poufs!!!

For the basic directions, I followed my tutorial for my first pouf.

I did however, make a few changes. I didn't use cording on these and I filled them differently.

3 Foam Sheets
1 Package of loose batting
Sewing machines and supplies

Directions: see original post.

To stuff the poufs I used a foam sheet in each one on the bottom to give it the square shape. The two smaller poufs are 14 x 14 x 4inches and the larger is 18 x 18 x 6inches. I then filled the rest in with batting.

I am so happy with how these turned out! I love the fabric patterns and how comfy they are.

They look great in Little Man's Big Boy room!!! And they REALLY are super easy to make!!! If you can sew a straight line you can sew these!

  6. Can you explain the "foam sheet" a little bit more? How thick are the foam sheets? I looked them up on and didn't see any square ones. Thank you.
