Want for this tufted Ottoman. Now, I'm just measuring trying to find all the center parts. So when you're working with a thinner foam like two-inch that I'm gonna use, you want to make sure the buttons isn't too wide, or else it won't be puffy the wider. It is it'll look more flat, so from the top lid I put two and a quarter inch, so the measurement is seven and a half inch side to side and top to bottom, and the other measurement on the top lid is seven inches to the edge and two and a quarter inch going downwards, so I'll be using a 3/8 drill bit to drill the holes.
So I like to use a two-inch firm foam like this. It gives it a nice crown puff to it if it's too soft, it's hard to get a nice puffy. Look to it and the type of glue that I'm using is at the top left corner. So for the sides, I'll be using two-inch firm foam as well, and this is the spray bottle that I'm using so once I'm done gluing all the sides I like to glue the top last. It makes it a lot easier now, I'm using a 12 inch needle like this and a marker, so I could poke it through the wooded holes I drilled earlier, so I could see it where the foam is and drill it out from there, which is a lot of faster and marking it on the form again, in my opinion, marking it on the plywood first hand, is more accurate than marking it on the foam.
So now I'm using a one-and-a-half-inch hole saw to drill at the foam, so you want to drill all the way to the wood. So I like to shave off a little off the edge like this. So you don't see a mark when you do pull the fabric on it. So now I'm wrapping the fiber all around the foam area. So it's a lot easier to work with when you do put the fabric on so I'd like to always thin off the edge. Like this, so you don't see the edge when you do start putting in the fabric on so here's how the pattern looks like we did four pieces of this for the corner and then four pieces again for the middle area and then one piece for the top.
So right now we're going to sew all the sides first, attaching it and then we'll sew the top afterward. So this is how one of the sides look like when it's done so once the sides are all done, we'll be sewing. The top part so I'll be using crystals like this, with the two-pound nylon strings. So the best way is to put two strings into the needle once and then push it down instead of doing one string at a time.
This is the type of staples that I'll be using and to lock it down. I like to make it look like this letter Z when you're fixing a plate, it's easy to put your fingers underneath the vinyl and play with it from there. Also, with this Rexel table, you're able to work a lot easier and more efficient, you can bring it up and down easier, so you want to make sure you're always stretching the vinyl outwards. So now I'm using a knife to cut through the foam.
