Pouf !!!

There are 4 women I work with that will be giving birth within 3 months ... yup, I work in a very fertile Marketing department ;-).

You saw quilt #1 yesterday (circles).  Quilt #2 was completed today and I am just waiting for a little sunshine to photograph it in.  Quilt #2 is for Katherine who is having her 2nd baby -- she's expecting a little boy who will be big brother to Owen.

This pouf is for Owen.  I can't remember where I actually saw this to begin with, but I saved the link to it on Pinterest (don't you just LOVE Pinterest???).  Then she has a link to a tutorial.

It's pretty simple to make ... and only takes 1 yard of decorator weight fabric, piping, poly-fil.  Must admit, I was a bit perplexed by the poly-fil and what to do with it, as it was the first time that i had ever used it ... but I worked my way through it.

It took about 2 hours to make the first one, but suspect I could whittle it down to <90 for="" minutes="" next="" one.="" p="" the="">

It's pretty spongy ... perfect for a kid to sink into ;-)

Here it is in a chair to get a bit of perspective on size -- the finished pouf measures ~16" wide by 8.5" tall.

Hoping Owen and mom like the new pouf !

A little more than halfway through our week out here at the cabin ... enjoying the beautiful space that we get to call our second home.  This is a photo of the garden on the back side of the cabin. 

Happy 4th!

All the best,
