remember how i had grand plans to make an easter present for my son, but because the fabric was late i had to make these instead? well, the fabric came, and after a few hours of sewing i had the sweetest pouf/ottoman/cushion for my son. i followed this awesome tutorial (that is seriously easy and so so so genius!), only i made mine bigger. it's 24x15 (rather than 17x9) and works perfectly as an ottoman or a seat to read books and hang out.
there is even a little handle so my little one can lug it around. there's 5 pounds of fiberfill in there, so it's pretty heavy for him! he loves to pull it and roll it around, so the handle is perfect.
my silly little guy loves it, and i think it is the perfect piece to finish off his room.
here's the dilemma: my husband has claimed it as his own and keeps thanking me for his "present." it's the perfect footstool when we are lounging around on the couch, and i love it in the living room too! i LOVE moroccan poufs and this gives me the look but with a much cheaper price tag (i think the total cost was $25). plus the fabric is so fun!
so do i make another one for my son's room, make another one for the living room, or just lug this one around and use it all over? i have the same fabric in grey, maybe make another in grey? and of course now i'm thinking i should have two in the living room instead of an ottoman and one in my son's room, which would mean i have to make TWO more! decisions, decisions!
have you ever made/bought something and just had to have more? i feel like that is the story of my life! haha! no, but really, i do....
