DIY Floor Pouf

So my husband and I recently moved into a new apartment…in an effort to be more “adult”, we got rid of all our furniture and decided to upgrade to couches and chairs that didn’t come from the cesspool that is Craigslist…been there, done that…and it’s gross.

We’ve yet to purchase a couch for our new place, but we still needed a place to sit and chillax while we watched TV or what have you, so I decided to make some floor poufs.

I had a ton of extra fabric laying around and these poufs put a serious dent in my stash, which my storage closet very much appreciated! 😉  They’re great for beginners and involve very little measuring, which my brain very much appreciated!

You’ll need about 2 yards of fabric, depending on how big you want your pouf to be.  You’ll need two panels that measure 24 in. X 24 in. – these will be the top and bottom of your pouf.  For the sides, you’ll need four panels that measure 24 in. high X 16 in. wide.  Then you’ll pin them together (front side down) like so:

Then you just run this baby through the sewing machine!  Start by sewing all the side panels to the bottom square, then sew the top panel to the top side panel.  Finish by sewing the top square to the front panel, being sure to leave a good 4 inches or so to turn right-side-out and stuff.

Once you’re done sewing, turn your piece right-side-out.  Fill with stuffing of your choice – I used Poly-Fill (I used 3 of the big bags).  Once filled, sew up the remaining hole and enjoy!
