A TUFFET

Wednesday was a fun day. A friend and I got together to each make a Tuffet.  The instructions were in this book Quilt Love.





I used a heavier weight home dec fabric that I thought looked a little like a Kate Spain print.


The top was meant to have an octagon sewn on but Dawn suggested a hexi flower. Love it!



The most fiddly part was sewing on the hexagon. Other than that, it was pretty straight forward.

The bottom



Just to give you an idea of how big this is, I found a wool batting that filled a large green garbage bag. I used all of it, plus a bag of polyfil.

Here it is in the nursery patiently waiting for Little Miss Muffet #1 and #2 to come for a visit  : )



Dawn had to leave before hers was finished but I will try to get a picture of it. She used Lily and Wil fabrics by Moda. I'm quite pleased with it and will most likely make another. Could be a cute gift sometime.

Enjoy your week-end.

Sooooo cute!! I fear that you will have to make another tuffet when Little Miss Muffet 1 & 2 come avisiting...they will 'need' to have their own!! Oh....and of course I love the hexagon flower....but then I would, wouldn't I??

Mrs Jones said...

Love it, especially your fun fabric choices. It looks a little similar to the Apple Pie Ottaman by Tanya Whelan.

So cool. I love the hexie on top and bottom!

Someone should write a limerick with the word tuffet and muffet!

Katherine said...

Totally fabulous! LOVE the fabrics you chose. Looks like a happy place to perch and I bet your Miss Muffets will love it too.

RobinSue said...

Love it! That book just made my "must purchase" list. Your fabric choices are delicious!

Your tuffet is wonderful! I've recently seen one online that's round and has wooden legs, so I ordered the pattern. Several friends and I are making them together, so I too will have one for when little grandsons visit. So useful, and pretty too!
