Knitted Ottoman Poufs
Arts & DIYNote: This is a multi-session event series. By purchasing the event package, you acknowledge that you can attend all event dates included below.
Old scraps of fabric make the outside of this lovely floor pouf, while unwanted scraps of almost anything make up the inside! Learn the basics of knitting while you make a great floor pouf out of recycled fabric. The first part of this class introduces basic knitting skills like the knit stitch, casting on, and binding off. During the second session, participants will learn the unique skills to stuff and bind their poufs to finish their colorful creations. Participants will have some homework between classes. Class fee includes fabric and handmade knitting needles. You are welcome to bring in your own cotton bedsheets, t-shirts, or fabric scraps.
Please note, this two-day workshop takes place on Tuesdays, September 18 and September 25 from 6:30pm – 8:30pm each session.
