Drumroll please, I bought a jeans pouf:
I bought mine on Amazon Prime for $79.99 (click HERE) which means I could pretty much get two for the price of the one black and white one I love so much. It’s also available HERE for $149. No thanks, Amazon came to the rescue again.
You might wonder why I bought another pouf? Well we use the one that I recently re-stuffed (click HERE for my post and stuffing trick) all the time and I want another one for the fireplace area. This time I wanted one that’s not stuffed with the beans because they get so easily smushed and you have to re-stuff again. This one is a solid big pouf, I don’t see it getting worn down anytime soon. I really love the quality.
Jeans Pouf With Tassels
Do you spy it in the above photo? I love how it looks with my living room. The pouf is a lighter version than my DIY jeans pillows (click HERE for tutorial). My tassel addiction called for some added detail though and here is what I did.
I still had this mop head HERE left and the wool matched perfect with the wool used to weave together the jeans strips of the ottoman.
I opened up the top of the mop where the thread holds it all together and separated the strands into 4 even amounts:
Then I folded each pile in half and knotted them together with a string:
I had some fringed strips of jeans left from my previous projects which I used to tie the head up.
But before I did that, I crumbled up a little aluminum foil ball for the inside of the tassel head as you can see in the below photo.
And of course Maya head to run with some of the jeans strips.
Here you can see how the head looks with the aluminum foil hidden inside of it and the jeans strip tightly wrapped around it.
I used an upholstery needle and thread to sew the strip close at the top of the tassel and to attach the tassels to the corners of the ottoman.
If you want to, you can open the strands of the wool yet to make the tassels bigger. So far I have only done it to one of the tassels and still have to do the rest.
It’s the same process I used to make the mop head wallhanging (click HERE to see the tutorial).
Gimme all the tassels!!! If you are new around here then you can find my “old leather sofa” tassel tutorial HERE.
Look how pretty the different shades of jeans are:

I’m not sure that’s the best choice yet either and might remove the tassels again because of our new baby kitty. Lets see how it goes.
I’m thinking of getting a second one yet. So we will have two for each chair at the fireplace area.
Have a great week
