Inspired by Michele Made Me's 'One Tough Pouf"
This is my own slightly altered version based on
Michele's fabulous tutorial.
Mine isn't as pretty and fancy as Michele's gorgeous Pouf - I didn't add any embroidery, and cut fewer pieces so the effect is a little plainer.
This is one of 5 projects I'm aiming to finish over the space of two weeks.
So far, I've upcycled an old squished bean bag into 3 new tablet bean bags.
I've turned old towels into reusable kitchen roll.
And now I've mangaged to sort through and use up most of my clothes upcycling pile...
First I picked out those clothes that were intact and in good condition and took them to the charity shop.
Then I removed buttons, notions and cut fabric from torn and already half used clothes. I added these to my nicely organised fabric and notions stash!
Finally I cut up the stash of jeans I had into useable pieces of denim, and separated the pockets (which I'll save for other projects!)
I'd had Michele's denin pouf on one of my Pinterest boards for ages - so decided it was time to make it.
I stuffed it with all the rest of the clothing scraps I had - together with lots more scraps I've hoarded for a long time - bits of old curtains, cushion covers and old worn sheets; and all the left over bits of the jeans I just cut up - seams, waistbands etc.
This was the perfect project to use up lot of things in one go!
We have a sofa with a 'chaise longue' - and that's the part that EVERYONE wants to sit on so they can put their feet up!
Well now - there is one more prime spot - where you can put your feet up on the nice new denim pouf!
Might be my new favourite spot!
So the only 2 projects I need to finish now are so something with these unicorn heads...
And tackle a quilt for my eldest daughter!
