kitty ottoman!

Whilst getting the nursery ready for our little girl, i absolutely fell in love with these Boramiri Cat ottoman/pouf things. The one thing i always find irritating is not having an ottoman to use with my rocker – and i thought this would be a great solution, cute + functional!

The unfortunate part was that this gorgeous store is located in France – and shipping to Australia was just not going to work. It’s not surprising, any time you ship something bulky it’s going to be insane.

So anyway, i couldn’t get them out my mind, so i decided to try a bit of a knock off version. Not exactly the same – but i really love it. I just used some extra draping muslin i had lying around, embroidered a little kitty face on and stuffed it with what was left with my scrap fabric. It’s a little lumpy, but meh, i’m really glad to have done something with all those scraps, even if they’re just being used as filling!
