Since it's a found object, its not as easy to slip cover as something that is square. I had to create creases at strategic spots. Strategery.
The fun part was the sewing! After I pinned up the two ends, I sewed them together like a sleeping bag for the pouf. Or a straight jacket.
For the top, I chose a Vaughan embroidered linen fabric, Mino. I pinned the top on and tucked under the edges.
I went with fabric pouf approach and not the somewhat ubiquitous leather pouf look. While I like that look, my precious sewing machine doesn't sew leather.
What do you think? I'm such a fabric lover that if I could, I would recover everything in my apartment. I'm loving the pouf idea too because it doesn't take up as much room as a chair and is light enough to move around the room.
