what can you do with a bunch of junk? such as:
5 bags full of fabric scraps
and two popped inflatable poufs (do you know what those are? i’d never heard the term used before in english, but it seems to be legit. if you don’t know, look at #4 here.)
just let me tell you. first you make a cut in the inflatable part of the pouf.
then you stuff it with the rugs and other fabric scraps, making sure to squash them in nicely behind that central part inside the pouf that keeps the top and bottom flat (we have yet another of these poufs which hasn’t popped, but this part inside has ripped or something and it is now a sort of ball).
when it’s nice and full, close it up with packing tape and put it back inside the outer cover. (if your outer fabric cover has a shortish zipper and doesn’t open up almost entirely, it’s best if you stuff the inflatable part while it’s already inside the cover, if not it might not fit back in when stuffed all the way up!)
and have a seat, or put your feet up on it!
i will tell you the truth: as with the 100% upcycled pillows (here and here), this stuffing is heavy. while it’s a bit too much so for a pillow, it doesn’t bother me at all for these poufs. actually, it quite like it because big people can sit on them without me having to brace myself for the pop and kids can’t throw them around here and there like mega beach balls!
