I don't know about you, but I always expect homemade stuff to be far more complicated than it really is.
If you visit the BHG link, you will be amazed at how straightforward it is to sew a pouf.
Burlap is used in the post but you can use any fabric - even old coffee sacks like The Country Chic Cottage did.

The cushion is knit with arms only and the measurements are about 22 inches by 54 inches.
She used such a striking pink - this is something a tween will definitely want!
Ama of Oh Oh Blog sew a floor cushion in an hour.
If you look at the pattern - it consists of 4 x triangles stitched together. She added 2 strips of ribbon to 2 corners of the cushion, this makes storing it out of the way easier.
To be quite honest, you can make your own triangle pattern, it is THAT easy!
The bright floral fabric makes it a eye-catcher!

I particularly like the shaping of the top of the pouf - it reminds me of a cushion my mother in law had on her patio.
The tutorial demonstrates how to crochet the knit pieces together, which makes neat and flat seams. You can however, use the conventional way of sewing it together.
My oh my, did that come out nicely....and she got me thinking...I have an old jersey of my dad...imagine I make a pouf or cushion with it....
She made an insert and stuffed it with polyester fibrefill. You could use scraps of fabric too.
