It’s comfy, it’s cozy, it’s a fabric pouf!
I wanted to make a pouf for some time now but I only tried it a few days ago. Now I want to make another one. And another one. How many fabric poufs can a home hold?
The pouf itself was really easy to make. I drew a circle on my fabric using a pencil, a string and a pin. I tied the string to the pencil, then pinned the other side of the string onto the centre of my to-be-drawn circle. If you have a compass that’s large enough, you could also use that, I’m just saying… you don’t need one.
Once you’re happy of your circle measure the diameter (mine was 61 cm/24 inches). You will need two of these circles to make the pouf and a long rectangle of fabric to create a cylinder shape.
To figure out the measurements of your cylinder (or pouf base) first decide how tall you want your pouf to be. Mine was approximately 30 cm/11.8 in. Then to figure out how long your rectangle you should be multiply the diameter of your circle by π.
So, in my case, my pouf was 61 cm; I multiplied this by 3.14 and got to a 191 cm, which corresponds to my circle’s circumference.
I sewed one of the circles to the rectangle first, then the second. I poured the pouf filling inside, then stitched it by hand.
It’s as easy as that!
