Materials List (makes 1 pouf)

Allow extra yardage for matching or centering a design on your fabric.

There are 2 options for making the poufs. The first option uses six
coordinating prints, the second uses just one print.

The poufs can be made using 44" wide quilting weight fabric OR 54" wide mid-weight Home Dec fabric. Please check the chart below for the amount required for the size you're making.

If you're using 44" wide quilting fabric you'll also need 60" wide 10 oz cotton canvas. (I use canvas from Thompson Manufacturing. You can substitute with Natural Duck Cloth made by Schott International, Inc.) Please check the chart for the amount needed.
