In two (3 hour) sessions you will create your own unique Tuffet! In Session 1 you will be sewing and learn the technique to make the foundation pieced Tuffet cover. As homework you will finish the Tuffet cover before Session 2 when we will put it all together. Tuffets can be whimsical, elegant, scrappy, or made to match any room. Every little girl needs a Tuffet, even grown up ones!
Robin, the instructor, will supply finishing kits the tools needed to finish the Tuffet.
