- Hot glue gun/glue sticks
- Sham that I haven't used in over a year (which just so happened to match my fabric perfectly)
- Fabric that I bought over the weekend and can't use
- Sturdy rubbermaid tote
LID: I had a feather pillow that I hate because the feathers poke out and hurt while trying to sleep. I hadn't been used for a while. I cut a corner on the pillow to let some of the feathers out (I think I'll use those extra feathers for matching pillows for this ottoman/extra seating.) I put one side of the sham on the lid and then pushed the pillow into the sham. After that I pulled the open end tightly over the lid. I had to cut the fabric a little bit to get it to squeeze onto the lid.
BOTTOM OF OTTOMAN: I started by making sure that the fabric would fit all the way around the tote. It worked out to where I could cover the bottom too by using the small width over the whole bottom. Usually storage tote's have some sort of lip that the lid matches up with.
I hot glued the fabric in the underside of the lip.
I tucked the fabric into the handle of the storage tote because I know we'll want to carry it around. I put hot glue in the handle holes and put double sided tape on the curved part of the handle under the fabric to keep it steady.
I used a popsicle stick to push the fabric into the hot glue in tight spots.
I cut the corners off and then folded them in a pleated fashion and tucked them into the lip. I secured it with hot glue.
Pleated corner on the ottoman.
