~thrifty thursday~{sort of}

Well, the project I planned to show you today will not be seen.
That's the bad news.
The good news is that I just got hired on as a contributor
for ReStyle Source and I will be showcasing it there soon!

So, today I want to show you how a old pile of fabric scraps became this gorgeous pouffe:

This project was a collaboration between my vision and my friend Jills talents.
Jill is also the gal who made my monogram pillow shams shown on our master bedroom makeover post.
I'm pretty sure this girl can sew anything, just saying.
So I showed her a picture of a similar pouffe and asked her if she could make one out of drop cloth material, vintage grain sack scraps, and other fabric scraps.
Of course, she rocked it. Not only did she rock it, but she made more. Check out these cuties {mine is on the bottom}

Here it is in it's new home, our living room!

Jill has a wonderful etsy shop here.
And as a contributor, my pouffe, as well as her others are in this issue of Celebrating Everyday Life! Get your digital copy right here for only $3.95.
Every page is gorgeous, you will get so many ideas for fall, I know I did!
There's even instructions on how to make your own pouffe if you are handy with a sewing machine!

So there you have it. Kinda a thrifty Thursday~how to turn fabric scraps into extra seating, only this is this girl is the brains behind this one!

I will be back tomorrow to announce the winners of the 2 giveaways. Have you entered both?
