Are you ever in need of a little extra seating in your family room or one of the kids' bedrooms? Well a "puff" from Norwegian blog Pickles may be just want you need.

The Puff Mama and Puff Daddy are basically big, cozy knit beanbag chairs, but they're stuffed with anything plush and cozy that you want to upcycle, such as an old duvet that's starting to fall apart, old t-shirts and other clothes, or pillows that have seen better days.

Pickles also has patterns for Puff Daddy's Baby and Puff Mama's Baby, pint-sized puffs perfect for kids rooms.

Though knitting is required, the pattern is quite simple, the yarn is thick and easy to work with, and the final product is the sort of cozy haven everyone wants to cuddle up in on a cold winter day.
