DIY Pouf

I love poufs! They make the prettiest living room accessory! So I went out in search of a cute, knitted pouf..

You know how much those things cost? €50! Hahahaha! €50! There’s no way I’m spending that much money on a pouf!

So I came home, actually contemplating if I should buy the ridiculously overpriced pouf.. Then I thought, I’ll just knit one myself! Why not, right? Wrong! See, I tried to knit before cos it looks so relaxing.. I started knitting a pillow cover once, now I have a knitted doll’s house carpet at best! So I moved on from that idea to an Ikea hack! Love Ikea, love love Ikea hacks! Continue reading “DIY Pouf”
