WIP WEDNESDAY a fun new ottoman

I have been doing lots and lots of sewing lately, but not much I can talk about yet.... so I have been a little quiet around here lately, but this weekend I made myself a fancy new ottoman- which really came out nice if I do say so myself.  This one is really just a practice version- I wanted to make sure I had the dimensions and construction method down before cutting into my yardage- so I dug through my scrap bin and found a pretty fat eighth of Good Folks by Anna Maria Horner- and I also found a large piece of linen I picked up at a thrift store a few months back- it had a few marks on it from being wrapped in tape- and a water mark- but I laundered it and even though it had marks I thought I could overlook that for a practice version.  I ended up filling it up with shredded paper- yay for recycling!  I can't wait to make a few more, it sure is nice to put my feet on- and really dresses up the living room too.  Fun stuff... can't wait to see what you all have been up to! :)  as always linking up to Lee at Freshly Pieced

  1. This is very smart - great idea for the stuffing too!

  2. The shredded paper will eventually loose its fluff but then you csn just replace. Great idea. Looks so nice. Is that a covered twine edge on the top. If so very impressed. Beautiful sewing.
