I’m seeing these little ottomans everywhere. Sometimes they are rounded poufs, while other times they are more like soft cubes or extra large floor pillows. No matter the shape, they are clever little punches of color that double as foot rests and extra seating in whatever room you use them.
Oh, and don’t tell Walmart about this photo… they are afraid you’ll find a better deal elsewhere and therefore don’t allow pictures in their stores. I may or may not have been told that I wasn’t allowed to take pictures inside the store on another occasion. Shhh.
I washed my fabric first then simply laid the fabric over the cube wrong side facing me and pinned it up at the seams for sewing. (sorry, I forgot to snap pictures during this part)
I did go for a little accent that I have never tried before – a ruffle. Again, I didn’t measure, just gathered the fabric every so often and sewed. Oh sure, I watched a YouTube video first on how to make ruffles, then decided I didn’t want to spend that much time on it. Since it was near the bottom, I figured it could be a little off here and there. I’m not entering this in the state fair. I sewed the ruffle to the outside of the bottom hem.
Once sewed, I just slipped them over the ottoman. They are washable too – which is a bonus in our house.
