Do you ever look at your stats or have you ever done a google search on your blog? It is amazing what you will learn. I was looking at mine and I was surprised to find out that my all time most viewed and searched blog post was on How To Make An Ottoman. This one post alone has had over 110,000 pageviews. Now originally it only got 34 comments, but views just keep going on. Amazing. It has also been googled thousands of times as people try to find instructions for making an ottoman. So, just for the fun of it I thought I would repost this post. If you havn't seen it, maybe it will be fun for you.
This was originally posted in January 2011.After I said I had made my ottoman, I've had so many people ask me how to make one. So here are very simple instructions. It really is so easy.
Next, cut a piece of heavy batting 61/2 inches wide and long enough to wrap around the box and staple it on in a few places. Then cut a piece of fabric 71/2 inches wide and long enough to go around the box allowing for a seam allowance. Sew the fabric together and make sure it is going to be a really tight fit. Then just slip it over the box placing the seam on one corner. Staple it to the top and bottom edge of the box. After that is stapled, cover some large cording and staple that on top of the box, again leaving the joining edge on the corner. See the below picture.
This really is such an easy project and you can have any size you want, covered in any fabric you want.
I hope this all made sense. I can't wait to see all the ones you create.
Thanks for stopping by, I always look forward to your visits.
