Crown Storage Pouf

Crown Storage Pouf

Crown Pouf
by Audrey of AudreyzCreationz

I created these for our kids when we were transitioning to our new home. We had to stay at a in-between place and I wanted for them to have a place to keep their stuffies and also blankets and pillows to not be all over. They also used them to sit and nap on occasionally… now we have them in a corner of their rooms where they sit and read.

Chunky to Super Bulky you can also hold strands together if you prefer.

Stitch this piece to the top of the other piece on the sides that you made in the loops that you skipped from before.
To make closed piece, stuff, than attach. You will need to stuff as you go also.
To make this a storage pouf, leave opening however large you feel you need. I left 30 stitches open.
Tie for mine, ch75.
I than weave my tie thru the opening, stuffed, tied shut.
