Sew a hassock or ottoman to use as a
footstool or as a seat for a child. Make it in all one colour, or alternate colours;
use neutral colours or bright colours.
Cut pattern piece from cardboard
allowing one inch per square.
Lay on fabric as per diagram and cut
fabric pattern pieces and lining pattern pieces. There is a seam
allowance of 1/4 inches.
Tack welting around all edges of every other strip and
Tack the strips together, wrong sides out, and stitch
three times for strength, leaving one seam open 20 inches for turning
and stuffing. After turning to right side, insert the zipper and
stitch several times for strength.
Pin the strips for lining together and
stitch three times, leaving one seam free. Place the lining inside the
ottoman and tack the lining and ottoman together except for the zipper seam. Cover
the button in the same fabric as the ottoman and sew to the top
catching the fabric and lining together. Stuff and shape, packing
well, as the stuffing will settle. As the ottoman is used, more
stuffing may need to be added as it settles.
