|huge Bernina box - where to put it??|
I had a tutorial for a cute ottoman cover saved in my bookmarks list. I think the cover came out great. It's kind of high for an ottoman, but it works. I used 2" thick craft foam for padding on the top of the box. After a few 'oops' and garbled swear words under my breath, I finally finished it! I'm not 100% in love with the print, but I'm fine enough with it that I don't want to start all over.

The tutorial I used is from Sew4Home and can be found here. If you decide to make it, I'd carefully measure your ottoman and decide how much fabric you really need. I bought 2 1/2 yards of canvas, which is not cheap btw, and only used about half of it. Also be sure to cut out pieces with your measurements! I wasted a ton of the print because I used the printed measurements, instead of (duh) inserting my own. Grr...this turned out to be more expensive than expected because I can't add/measure/cut.
