For something a little different today...I made a floor pouf for my home!
Modern Textiles. I fell in love with the floor poufs while they were still developing the pattern. It was a fun, practical project and I highly recommend it!
I made sure to fill it quite densely, as recommended by the pattern, so it can be used as an ottoman or even a chair for a little person. My kids love it! This one was made using decorator fabric, but you KNOW that I'm already dreaming of making a scrappy version. :)
It's so nice to have a BIG finish to share today!
I also wanted to give you a heads up...Craftsy is having their best sale of the year right now and it runs through Monday, 11/30/15. All classes are $19.99 or less, so if you had your eye on one, now is the time to purchase! I'm currently taking the class Basics of Digital Photography, which is fabulous. It's about time that I actually learn how to use my camera properly! On the quilting front, I'm taking Jacquie Gering's class Creative Quilting with Your Walking Foot, which is filled with great information. I've been watching both classes as I trim HST blocks and while I am chain piecing. It's so nice to be able to maximize my time and keep my mind occupied while I do those mundane quilting tasks. My class, Colorful Scrap Quilting is on sale, too! Craftsy classes never expire, so you can watch on your own timeline and re-visit the lessons as often as you like. That's a good thing!
Now it's your turn! Please link up your finishes for the week. Thanks for joining me for finish it up Friday! Hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving!
Oh isn't it gorgeous! I love the fabric, somehow it looks to me like a giant pinecone- just the thing for vegging out on on a lovely lazy long weekend!
Great finish!! My kids would love it too.
wish you all the best this holiday season!
What a lovely finish you have this week - I think my children would be fighting over it! I have all those three books on my bookshelf!
I have lots of old holey jeans waiting to become part of a project. Wouldn't this pouf be great made with some scrappy jean fabric!
That looks like the perfect place to put your feet up while stitching some binding! Nice!
I absolutely love Jacquie's classes on quilting with your walking foot. The first one is fantastic, but the second one is freaking brilliant. I highly recommend it. Love your pouf!
Given all the scraps used as stuffing, does this clever pouf count as another scrap project? 😉
Love the floor pouf. I've always wanted to make one of those. And good to know about the Craftsy sale. :)
Love the look and the fabric choice! That looks great! My nieces made a couple of these just recently when my family got together for our own little sewing retreat.
They turned out so cute and one of my nieces is actually just learning to sew!! Very fun and great pattern!
the pouf looks good and makes an excellent chair for visitors without taking up too much room
How fun - though I can envision my boys pushing each other off until someone gets hurt. And so it goes.
I have home dec fabric and just need the pattern--all of a sudden i'm having a crush on poufs and also always looking for things for little people to sit on--I'm sure this would be a huge hit!
