Turn dollar store rag rugs into a fun Moroccan floor pouf! Stuff it with everything from old towels and scrap fabrics to recycled plastic bags and Poly-fil. For this and many more ideas, follow me on YouTube here: http://bit.ly/Ns4qgx

I used E-6000 FabriFuse to glue a lining to the rugs before I stitched them together. This helped keep them from fraying and to keep them very sturdy. You can find the link to the pattern here: http://www.markmontano.com/p/blog-page_27.html

I stenciled the top circle of the pouf with DecoArt Dazzling Metallics and used a heavy cotton for the glue-in lining.

    This looks quite expensive. I always prefer making items as they mean more than when you buy something. However this pouf with all the fabrics, number of rugs, metallics and e6000 looks like it might be expensive to make. I prefer the one in photo with the purples but have never seen rag rug with any purple. Total cost would be valuable on these projects.
