here. It is very easy to follow!
Here are some notes I'd add from making my own pouf:
-I used a thin, distressed leather hide. It was about 2 yards and I had some left over.
-Pleather would also work great!
-For stuffing, I used batting, old pillow cases, and pillow filling. To fill your pouf, stuff a lot towards the top and shape it. This makes the shape prominent and doesn't make it too stiff. Be less generous with the stuffing towards the zipper.
-I was going to add stitching afterwards using the zig zag stitch on my machine but stuck with the subtle shapes. If you want to add stitching, I would recommend going over each seam with a zig zag or decorative stitch before moving onto the next shape.
-The directions say to make 16 of each shape, I ended up only using 13 because I think I made my circle too small. I was still pleased with how the size turned out.
-For my zipper I used the technique I used here. I wasn't too worried about hiding it since it will always be on the bottom. I cut the circle out in one piece and attached the zipper to line up with the long rectangle I cut out.
-A great idea is to make two or three in different colors and sizes and style like this.
