    What's the bottom dimension (in inches, cm, whatever) on the triangles? Mine look smaller than yours and my setting it at 100%. I've had to rip things out twice and really don't want to have to rip a third time. Knowing that bottom measurement would be helpful. Can't wait to get it right! Great video!

    Hi there… just love all your videos on sewing as I’m new to it this year… I wanted to make this pouf, but the free pattern download is no longer there on your site. Is it possible to still get it?

    Perhaps the reason for the seams not matching is that when sewing the last piece together in the video, you reverted to marking a "1/4 inch" seam allowance instead of 1/2 inch??? Oops…I just noticed you posted the correction…thanks!!!

    It took me a while, but I finally figured it out that you have to print this on landscape instead of portrait! I could see where others were having problems too so I hope this will help.

    also Jennifer another question for ya: when you do the side seams a zipper could be placed there could it not? I was going to give this a gift to a older man and he would ask me "how do i wash it" like he always does when I make him stuff. its possible isn't it?

    I've attempted to make this twice. Any suggestions for getting things to line up properly? My triangle pattern printed out properly, however, when sewing them together, there are never perfect points, even if I start at the middle. Things don't line up when sewing to the side pieces. I actually run out of fabric on the side pieces. I end up with puckers from folding the triangles to make them fit. I really want this to come out right. Its disheartening to spend time on it, only for it to not come together.

    I have never done anything on this scale before but my son has asked me to make a round pouf for him and wants two casings, one for the stuffing and a removable one to wash (phew, he doesn't ask for much does he? LOL). Thank you so much for this video it has given me a head start.

    I love this but I feel like you ended it too early. I wanted to see how full you stuff yours, and how hard is it to hand sew the opening closed, etc.

    HOWDY–I just finished 2 of these in Texas A&M collegiate fabric yesterday and had my daughter and her boyfriend stuff. One pillow i had put a zipper in it and the other I hand stitched as in your tutorial I recommend a zipper for those that my have arthritis or difficulty hand stitching this pillow closed. Trying to squeeze the opening closed was trying to fit a size 10 body in a pair of size 8 jeans. You could not pin or clip to hold in place and even my hands got crampy. The zipper made a beautiful finish and when i have to unstitch my daughter's boyfriends pillow to wash after pulling out the stuffing I will add grommets and a shoe lace to close! Wanted to share a few ideas and suggestions. As always love our tutorials!! Thank you 🙂

    Hello, Jen! I just did the puff, but I had a small problem: after cuting all the pieces EXACTLY as mentioned on the pattern, my triangles were much smaller than yours and, obviously, the side piece was way to big. Maybe, I should increase the pattern for the triangles? Or, what size are your triangles? Thank you for the turorial and for your answer, I just discovered you and I LOVE what you do 🙂 Greetings from France!
