Ottoman desire

Sometimes I find myself wishing I could make my own furniture or at the very least, sew. I know exactly what I want for our living room: a low, square, blue tufted ottoman that’s large enough to accommodate the area. I think we need to bring the blue together more in the living room, it’s soft so I don’t need to worry about A hitting his head on it, and what we have now is too small so only two people can put their feet up at a time and they have to be cozy.
The thing is I don’t even know where to look for something like that (it just occurred to me, that’s something Jonathan Adler would have) and even if I did, I probably couldn’t afford it. My goal is to one day become a DIY master and thereby avoid such dilemmas.

Sidenote: just put Aiden down for his morning nap and so far he’s been talking and singing to himself, despite his droopy eyes and numerous yawns when I actually put him in his crib- this always happens. He also learned two new words this morning: “messin” for medicine (he’s getting over a cold and intense teething) and I kid you not, “Fiona”-all three syllables. This is due to the little Shrek figurines that come with Cheerios and Aiden likes to have on his high chair tray while he eats. Sometimes he feeds them.
