I recently made a fabric cover for our Ikea Sandared Pouffe. It's a fabulous dome floor cushion with 6 panels and a flat top and bottom. The pouffe comes with a knitted/crochet cover but if you wanted a fabric cover like us then read on.

For the 6 piece sample in this tutorial I used a medium weight Red cotton and some Hoooked t-shirt yarn to drawstring the base. I also embellished this one with a star using a scrap of denim from the sleeve of a garment that I recently cut up.

I picked up the Ikea Sandared Pouffe on Ebay for a steal but I think Ikea still make this design.

Here's how I constructed the cover:

MAIN

CUT OUT - 6 Panels and 1 top.

SEW one panel to another right sides together and press seam open.

TOP STITCH down each side of seam approx 0.5cm allowance.

REPEAT until you have joined the first to the last panel.

TOP

Before joining the top piece consider whether to Applique a design, and do this first if so. I used Stitch 13 on my Janome 230DC to sew my denim star down.

ATTACH top using notch markers to ease the circle into main.

TOP STITCH 0.5cm to outer edge of seam (TOP TIP sew slowly opening seam allowance as you go)

DRAWSTRING BASE

TURN UP 0.5" on bottom raw edges and PRESS.

TURN UP  another 1" and press to create a channel for drawstring.

SEW the hem/channel leaving a 2" gap for drawstring entry and exit.

THREAD your chosen cord through base channel with plenty to spare. I chose to use a Hoooked Zpaghetti t-shirt cord.

This sample was the 45cm product but I am considering drafting a pattern for the other IKEA sizes so get in touch if this interests you.

If you like the denim version I made, just cut the Main panels with an added seam allowance instead of a folded edge and use the legs of old jeans to recycle/reuse/reduce.
