Oversized Floor Pouf

Use this comfortable and stuffy Oversized Floor Pouf as a chair or an ottoman.  Made with a simple pattern, this DIY floor pouf is great for living rooms, kids rooms, and small living spaces.  Make an assortment of poufs in complimenting colors and stack them in a corner of your room for functional furniture that doubles as decor.  This is a great pattern for beginners.

Oversized Floor Pouf


  • Cutting Mat (24" x 36")
  • Easy Action™ Razor-edge Scissors (No. 8)
  • Approximately two yards of cotton or canvas fabric
  • Sewing machine and thread
  • 3-4 bags of polyfill stuffing


20" x 14" pouf

  1. Cut two 20"x 20" inch squares of fabric (these will be the top & bottom of your pouf).

  2. Cut four 20" x 14" squares of fabric. Alternately, you can cut two 20" x 28" strips of fabric (these will form the sides of your pouf).
  3. Pin right sides of 20" x 14" or 20" x 28" pieces together. Stitch seams to form a “tube” of fabric.
  4. Pin 20" x 20" square to one side of the fabric “tube,” being careful to align the corners.
  5. Sew seams to form a base. Don’t worry if the sides don’t align perfectly…you may need to form a small pleat in some places. This won’t be noticeable when the pouf is stuffed.
  6. Pin remaining square, and sew 3 sides. On the fourth side, leave an opening to insert stuffing into.
  7. Turn pouf right side out, and stuff with polyfill until you reach your desired firmness.

This is a great addition to any kids or teenagers room. This Oversize Floor Pouf is a good way to make more seating room when the kids have friends over. You can bring them out and place them around on the floor and put them all in corner when done. When you make them yourself you can also get color or design you want. Simple and quick to make. Anyone make some yet?

First I have to say this is a great idea. However if you double one side you have to double the other, rather than 20 x 28 it should be 40 x 28. also you have to add for seam allowance. I used half inch.
