Step 1: Decide how big you would like your pouf and using a compass draw the circle to that size on tracing paper. Make sure to add an additional 2cm to the diameter to allow for a 1cm seam allowance. I bought a very cheap compass from a stationery store which did the trick. To get a size big enough just move the position of the pencil in the compass. My circle was 44.5cm in diameter.
Step 3: The bottom of the pouf is where you will insert the zipper in a centre seam. Because you will be inserting a zipper you will need to add an additional 1.5cm to the seam edges in the centre.
To create this, fold your circle pattern piece in half and place it on the fold of your material 1.5cm away from the edge of the fold.
Cut out the half circle and then cut down the middle where the fabric fold is. You will then end up with two half circles.
Step 5: Now you will need to cut out the fabric for the sides of the pouf. It is up to you how high you want your pouf. I cut mine out with a 38cm width which includes the 1cm seam allowance.
To determine how long your rectangle of fabric will need to be for the sides, use the following calculation: Diameter of the circle x 3.14cm – 2cm seam allowance.
The length of fabric may end up being wider than the fabric you have and that’s OK. Just cut out another rectangle and sew them together to get the length you need.
Step: Now your pouf is sewn up, it is ready to be filled. You can choose from a range of fillings – your choice will depend a little on what you want to use the pouf for. If you want a firmer poof, use rags and/or pieces of foam.
If you want a medium firmness, bean bag filling is best. If you want it to be softer almost like a pillow, polyester stuffing will work best. For mine I used bean bag filling.
