How to Fill a Moroccan Pouf

Moroccan Pouf

A few months ago as I was pulling together Max’s nursery (Yes, it still needs to be finished so I can share photos with you all!), I opted for a silver Moroccan pouf to use as an ottoman. We didn’t have an ottoman last time and I really felt like I missed having somewhere to put my feet up. A quick search and I had found the perfect ottoman online and had it shipped my way. A few days later when it arrived, I immediately knew something was up when the box was a fraction of the size I was expecting. It turns out they often don’t come filled. It was just the outer shell of the pouf! (Forehead slap! Must read fine print more often!!)

Once I got it all figured out, I decided to do a quick tutorial on how to fill a Moroccan pouf in case some of you might be in the same predicament one day. Please tell me I’m not alone in ordering something without reading all the details and fine print?! Anyone else out there order before reading, measuring or researching or am I the only shopping cart trigger happy gal, ha! Regardless, here is my take on how to fill a pouf.

    I picked up a couple of Moroccan poufs when I was in Fes, Morocco a few years ago. In Morocco, poufs are used as a way to store clothes and extra blankets. I use them when I rotate my wardrobe. You can fit so much stuff in there. I’m glad you figured out a way to fill your pouf! As an added measure, I usually put in a scented sachet to keep clothes smelling nice while they’re stored away (and lesson learned, I need to use one that will keep the moths at bay…don’t underestimate their ability to find a way into places you don’t think they’ll sneak into…I lost several JCrew sweaters when I pulled them out of my pouf this winter).
