Union Jack Pouffe

Remember the Pouffes from last year?  I just made another one and this time I added a Union Jack detail to the top.union jack pouffe-1

This Union Jack pouffe was created for Tricia from Little Cottage on the Pond to put in her son’s room.union jack pouffe-8

You can see the pouffe in its new home here.union jack pouffe-4

I had such fun creating this pouffe.  Tricia told me I had ‘full creative license’ and sent me a pic of her son’s room.union jack pouffe-2

I used 2 different European grain sacks to create the 8 sides of this pouffe.  4 of the pieces were cut from the striped areas of the sacks and the other 4 were cut from the  plain parts.  The 4 plain pieces were then detailed using pieces of other grain sacks to creat patches, letters and stripes.union jack pouffe-5

The stripes were created by serging along the edges of the leftover stripe of one of the grain sacks.  The Union Jack stripes were made the same way.  The cross stripes that are thinner are a french style ribbon I had in my stash.  I love the look these elements created.union jack pouffe-6

Every piece I create that I put myself into is hard to pack up and ship off.  But that’s really how I prefer it.  I love being able to create something that I love and have a bit of my heart woven into it and then ship it off to someone who is going to love it.

    I love the poufs you make! I actually found my own at Target the other day and just posted about it. I love that yours are made from authentic grainsacks though. I also like the round shape of yours. So cute!

    I am so in love with these pouffes. I even bought the magazine so I could get the instructions. I just haven’t started yet. Maybe I will have to get you to do one instead! They are great! And, this latest one if adorable!

      So glad you like them! They really aren’t hard to make if you get all the stuff rounded up and buy the fill! I’d be glad to make you one if you decide not to make your own!

    Jill – I just adore, adore it! You know I’m a Union Jack fan myself! And I’m right with you with the hard to let go of the things we make! I’m surprised each and every time when things come out right!

    And thanks so much for linking up at the party!

    :) Linda

    Wow! I’m in awe of your pouffe not only because I can’t sew worth a darn but because I don’t think you could have come up with a cuter, more creative pouffe to fit the space. I’m sure Tricia and her son were thrilled with it! So glad you linked up on Best of the Nest!
