|1. Some folded, much of this is less than a yard. 2. An overflowing container. |
3. About a dozen baggies sorted by colors. 4. A bag I don't think I've even looked at yet!
- Scraps of all sizes and colors
- Two yards of a fabric that you no longer love (or old sheet, table cloth, curtain, etc)
- Zippers (2 per puff)
- Styrofoam, packing peanuts, old bean bag chair, fiber fill, old pillows, etc.
- Basic sewing supplies
A few notes before we begin. I used serged all my seams, if you don't have a serger, I recommend either double stitching every seam or a tight zig zag. If you have children like mine who WILL jump on and abuse these, securing the seams will reduce seams splitting and a major mess (I know this from experience).
Make a pattern. Overall I wanted my floor puffs to be 36 inches in diameter, I also knew I didn't want a bunch of uniform squares. My kitchen floor is 18 inch tiles, so using some scrap paper and scissors, I cut pieces to get a starting point.
I'm not going to give you pictures for the next step. We are going to sew the circles together and include a zipper on each. Every time I try to take pictures when adding a zipper, I put the zipper on backwards! Follow the directions on the package! We have essentially made two circular bags, see:
My assistant decided I'd filled it enough for the time being!
