Here’s what you'll need:

Let's get started!

Step 1

Measure your ottoman. As we used a square ottoman base, the 5 sides required are all the same size For example, our ottoman is 20” wide x 20” wide.

Step 2

For contrast color blocking as per our ottoman, divide the 20” in half = 10” squares and add 1 inch all around for seam allowances.

You will have 4 squares of 11” x 11” for each side of which:
- 2 squares will be in colour 1 (brown)
- 2 squares will be in contrast color 2 (grey)
