Hi everyone, my name is Michelle, the owner, designer, blogger and YouTuber behind MJ’s Off the Hook Designs and Sentry Box Designs, a creative haven for yarn-lovers and popular resource for accessory, garment and home decor crochet patterns.
I’m a self-taught crocheter, starting about seven years ago and becoming obsessed ever since. Within six months of learning to crochet, I was selling finished products through FB and a local store. 2 years later, I started selling my patterns. My fun, beginner-friendly patterns, including my Mermaid Tail Blanket and Shark Cocoon Blanket, gained incredible popularity on social media leading to a feature on Tyra Banks Fab Life show. My most popular patterns include my whimsical cocoon and hooded blankets. You can find many of my hooded blankets as kits from Mary Maxim. More recently, I’ve started Crochet Foundry Magazine with three other designers that focus on size-inclusive garments for modern women.
Starlette Floor Pouf
I’ve included an easy pillowcase insert tutorial so that you can fill the pouf without stuffing coming out of the stitches. For a hard floor pouf, you can sit on fill with bean bag filling. Another option that still works well is to stuff the pouf with polyester fiberfill. I’ve also had customers stuff with pillows, blankets and even toys. The pattern includes a drawstring option so that you can remove the cover for washing. I have re-made the video tutorial exclusively for Starlette chunky; you can watch the video tutorial HERE. This beautiful ottoman adds style to any room in your home. Use in your home office, bedroom, playroom or sitting room.
