Happy Monday! This is Bia from Ms.Elaineous with a great project for those of you who are ready to make something a little unexpected out of Cuddle. I love the new Majestic Cuddle – maybe that’s because I spent time walking through the Medina in Fez, Morocco. This fabric captures the essence of that wonderful experience! And let’s face it, nothing says “Morocco!” more than this beautiful PLUSH POUF!
The pouf measures about 18″ tall with a 29″ diameter. It includes a zippered “inner pouf” made from cotton duck (and filled/refilled with bean bag beans – I use Fairfield Bean Bag Filler) and a zippered “outer pouf” made from Shannon Majestic Mirage and Medallion — with a contrasting brown faux leather band. The outer pouf can be unzipped for easy removal and cleaning.
The nine-page pattern includes a project overview, a zipper tutorial, the pattern, and a supplemental slip-cover pattern. Because of the zippers, I rate the skill-level as an Intermediate+.
