Size: 20 inches high x 90 inches circumference
Materials: 3 1/4 yards 36 inch sail cloth or any heavy tightly woven upholstery fabric
3 1/4 yards of 36 inch lining
10 1/2 yards welting
2 inch button for top
1 heavy 20 inch zipper
thick sewing thread

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 stitch.

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.
