     1.  Stencil 2 mandala patterns in Dazzling Metallics on the dark heavy cotton fabric
    2. & 3.  Cut them out and notch around the pattern
    4.  Cut 6 side panels in the heavy cotton fabric
    5.  Glue the panels to the rag rugs with E-6000 Fabri-Fuse 
    *The fabric panels will stabilize the rag rug and keep them from fraying
    6.  Cut the rag rugs in the shape of the side panels when the Fabri-Fuse is dry
    7.  & 8.  Sew two of the panels together on one side (rugs facing each other) with 1/2" seam allowance
    9.  Continue sewing all of the rugs in a circle leaving a 5" gap in the last seam
    *This will be used to turn it right side out and for stuffing 
    10.  This is what your pattern stitched panels will look like when they are sewn
    11.  Pin the circle notches to the panel seams on both the top and bottom and stitch around using 1/2" seam allowance
    12.  Stuff the pouf with everything you can find from old towels and recycled plastic bags to pillow stuffing and fabric scraps and then stitch closed.
