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 sent a couple smaller items I had made along with the pouffe and Tricia is hosting a giveaway on her blog and giving those items away!  Head on over there and enter!

I have not made time to make any of these pouffes to list on etsy.  If you are interested in one of your own you can leave me a comment or you can email me, contact me through facebook, google+ or Instagram.  A pouffe made from European grain sacks costs $125 plus shipping.  Pouffes made from other fabric that is less expensive run $85 plus shipping.

    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!
