Moroccan pouf/Mackenzie Childs inspired Ottoman/ part 3

If you are new to the thread click to read: Part One here   Part Two here

Time I plan to work on this today? 2PM-6PM then I HAVE to do homework.

I stopped work on the ottoman last night because something about it just did not feel right about it and I had worked on it far tooooooo long (>12 hours).  I did not like the fact that the button was not sunken down enough no matter how tight I pulled it and I wanted to sleep on the question of whether or not I was going to put top stitching on the design or not.  I like that in the original but wasn’t sure if that was going to be too over the top for this one.

I don’t want to make it so ornate that people are afraid to sit on it and I don’t want the grand kids or Bear pulling out the stitches either (I would kill them).  The stitches will give it that taste of ethnicity though and that’s what I wanted.  Then there is the question of what to use yarn or thread? I will decide on that task last.  So much to consider.

I figured out the button problem.  I have to make a hole for the button to sink into.  That meant I had to remove the sewn on button and the cover and then cut a hole.  That made me a little nervous.

After all that…still was not happy with it AND now the center circle looks REALLY  uneven

I AM DONE WITH THIS!!  I will work on painting the legs and putting on the trim work another day…

Mt grand kids call my ottoman the tomato chair.  LOL!!!

  1. Well not being there in person I wold just say move the button over a bit to center it . Bring your needle up a little off center then down a little off center the other way. Looks great otherwise.
