My friend gave me this giant bolster insert that was sent to her in the wrong size. I was going to make it into a pouf, but since I got one for Christmas I made other plans. I looked all over the web for turquoise velvet, but didn't find anything affordable. So, I went over to my local fabric store, Jenny's, and found velvets but they weren't perfect. I was near giving up when I found this beautiful blue soft fabric. It's really made for blankets, but this bolster is for my kids and they will be playing on the floor with this, so I thought it was perfect. It also looks very velvety. I had one of my friend's mom sew it, we love it. It's big and mushy and kinda like a beanbag.
