Update your living space when you turn a curtain into a pouf

Whether you're looking for function or fashion, adding a pouf to your home is an ideal way to check off both boxes. Poufs can be used as extra seating when you have guests or as a foot stool while you prop your feet up and watch favorite shows on TV. They even add a hint of style if you've been thikning about giving your room a makeover, without having to consult an interior designer.
Incorporating a pouf into a living space offers endless options for decorating, and you can even play around with how you want to use this new piece. The best part is you can create one from a curtain panel that isn't being used anymore. Gather the supplies, get your creative juices flowing, and snap your fingers, because "pouf" — your room is about to get a stylish little makeover.

Instructions
1. Spread out the curtain panel on a flat surface.
2. Cut the curtain into the correct shape for the pouf. It should resemble a cross. If it helps, create a smaller paper cross to follow as a pattern.
3. Pin and sew the edges together, leaving one section open. You may also choose to serge the edges, which is optional.
4. Pin and sew the zipper to the interior of the open edge, and sew the remaining edges closed. Leave the zipper open so the pouf can be turned right-side out.
5. Turn the pouf right-side out, and fill with bean bag beans.
6. Close the zipper to keep the beans inside.
