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!!!
This is so darling! I love the idea of it as a huge pin cushion!ReplyDelete
Your tuffet is adorable!! Such eye candy with all the fun colors! Those red feet are to die for!! I made one of the big tuffets about 3 years ago and I do love it but have no desire to make another one that size! I have the kit for the small pincushion and you have convinced me to make it!!! Can't wait!!!ReplyDelete
So cute! A small seat for a doll and a giant pincushion, that made me giggle! Beautiful finish!ReplyDelete
