It's Finished And It's So Cute!!!!

EEekk, I am so excited!!!    I finished my Tuffet and I just love it :)   I have been sharing my Tuffet Progress over the last few weeks here, here, and here.   You could totally make one of these in a day, but I have loved having it as a fun little project to work on when I have a few minutes here and there.  And now that it is all done, I just can't get over how cute it is!!!


I think my favorite part is looking at it from the top :)   I just love seeing all of those adorable fabrics come together into a tight gathered center.  And the polka-dot button center, so cute!!!  This is the 8" Tuffet I made with this Tuffet Kit, and I had so much fun with it, it really has me wanting to make one of the big ones!!!


From the last time I shared my progress, all I had left to finish was the bottom.  I painted the legs in a happy red, and then added the same red polka-dot print to cover the base.  You stable the cover on, and then add a little decorative trim to cover the staples.  I was planning on adding red ric-rac, but when I went to my trim bag I realized I was all out.   But I saw this little gold trim and thought it would make a fun little pop of surprise on the bottom.


And I have to say, my daughter's are already trying to claim my Tuffet for their 18" dolls.  It makes a perfect sized seat for them.   But I told them sorry, I will have to do another Tuffet Kit for their dolls because . . .


This Tuffet is all about being a giant pincushion!!!!   I plan to keep it at the quilt house to sit on the table of 4 sewing machines.  How cute will it be centered between them all and make for a perfectly adorable pin storage for everyone :)


I am so glad I decided to treat myself with this little Christmas Present ;)  I really have had so much fun making this up and I am just thrilled with the way it all came together!!!     I can  see myself getting one for Christmas for many years, well at least 3 since I have 3 girls that really want their own now :)   And thanks for following along with me as I put this little Tuffet together ;)

I hope you have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!! 

Linking up this finish to Amanda's, Sarah's, and Myra's :)
