You love them all, right? I know, I do , too!!:-)
So today’s theme was outdoor as we are into summer with double feet and we are spending all of our free times outdoors. You heard me saying it few times already ( I know, I know, I know…)and I will tell you again, that we love spending time on our fun and colorful patio. We made an L shape pallet furniture last year and I thought an extra seating or just a simple footrest would be great addition to our cozy deck.
This chic stripe pouf was my inspiration for today’s project.
I just simply loved the fabric. I did not find anything that was close to looking like this striped fabric so I painted my own. 🙂 I love painting anything, did you know that?
2 yards of white outdoor fabric. ($9.99/yard)
blue fabric paint
As a first step I measured and cut my fabric, (16″ x 17″) then I painted my uneven lines on with a small paint brush. It only took me about 15 – 20 minutes to paint the whole fabric.
I cut out a long piece and it was easy to go from the top to the bottom with my lines. I also chose to cut out a long piece so I would not have to sew all sides together. I have a sewing machine but I only use it maybe once a year for a project. I am by no means know how to sew a more serious project but I can handle to sew together two pieces of fabric.
On the image below I wanted to show you in what order did I go to sew the sides together. The blue numbers show you how I sew the fabric together in order.
To help me to go in a straight line I used my sew pins to hold the fabric together.
I left one side open so I could fill up the inside with poly fill. I bought 4 bags and I also used two pillow fill that I had on hand.
After filling the inside I used my permanent super fabric glue to close the opening.
This fun striped pouf will be perfect addition to my patio. I can use it to sit on it or as a footstool.
See, my little B hopped right on when I put it out there 🙂
How do you like my cool West Elm knock off project? Knock offs are always fun!
This pouf was going to be $149 and I tackled it for less than $40. Yay!! I love to save money and create chic an expensive decor on the budget!
