Moroccan Poufs

This is not a reference to homosexuals from North Africa as a friend first thought when I offered her one!

As a fellow Florence Broadhurst fan, she’d bought me a cut of her favourite pattern and I thought whilst I was on a roll (haven’t put the sewing machine away yet), I would make her some cushions or a Moroccan pouf as a gift.

They’re also called ottomans or a footstool.

I got the basic pattern from a thrifty lady online who made one out of a dress! I like it!

Also love her simple pattern.

As you can see I have missed out the top and bottom hexagon that she used and opted for a zip on the side and to sew all the way up the top and bottom.

I filled it with those bean bag polystyrene balls. It will sit in my window until she comes to collect it.

Hope she likes it!

Ta-da! It’s a small bean bag actually.
