The folks from Today's Nest put together a great to tutorial to help you create the stool-turned-poof. Here's how they describe picking out the (mostly salvaged) materials:
The materials used in today's project have been kicking around the studio for months. I do not recall how we came to own the bad green foam footstool, but I knew I wanted it for the foam. Foam is expensive and if you are lucky enough to have a resource for different shapes you are certain to pay even more for it than the sheets available at most fabric stores.
The fabric itself was leftover from a chair we reupholstered long ago. Apart from that, just a few other materials are required... many of them are likely to be in your craft area.
The casters were picked for this project strictly for their bright color. I found them at a home improvement store.
