What is round and puffy and doubles as a foot rest, pet bed, floor cushion, throw pillow, reading nook, landing and launching pad? Give up? That’s right this little round burst of color we call a pouf. For adults it’s a great place to rest your tired feet and adds to the home decor. For kids it’s a much different story. Poufs just happen to be the perfect size for leaping onto, rolling across the floor and crawling all over. Either way you look at it a pouf can be enjoyed by the young and old (including your pets) and looks great in a home. There are basic square poufs for the beginner sewer and moroccan poufs for those more advanced, even knitters can whip up a beautiful knitted pouf. You can find these poufs and many more in our round up of 25 DIY Pretty Poufs to Make…
