|Missy claimed the pouf in this picture, but don't be fooled, the other two will snag it if they can.|
My mom gave the one she made to my sister, who has since had to throw it out because her cat peed on it numerous times, and my mom has long wanted a new one. I've been saving "stuffing" (i.e. teeny tiny scraps too small for anything else) ever since and finally had enough to make another one for my mom.
We made the original ones out of quilting cotton, but I've often thought since then that they might be better out of some home dec fabric. I decided to use fabric I already had on hand, especially since I found (from who know where) this fun teal cordouroy and another complementary print. I wish I'd had enough to alternate pieces, but alas there was only enough of the print for two segments. I did include the piping (as in my earlier version) which I think is a nice complement.
It takes a surprising amount of stuffing to fill one of these to a nice sturdiness, and of course the use of the scraps makes it a little lumpy, but my previous ones are filled with a mix of scraps and poly-fill and it has evened out over time.
Missy likes it in any case, so hopefully my mom will too!
