I flaked on posting in the actual WIP Wednesday for this because I wasn’t actually finishing this little project until last night! I signed up for a tuffet class at a local shop, Sew Main Street, for January originally so I could take it with a friend. Due to a Series of Unfortunate Events, really more Jerry-Lewis-French-farce than true disaster, I ended up not taking the class until May.
It’s not hard per se – the toughest bits are pressing the fabrics once they are all sewn together and using the giant pokey upholstery needle to tuft the tuffet with the button. Of course, the benefit of the class is that we had extra help on hand to help with the bits that require manual labor, and the kits came with the foam already adhered to the wood base and covered in batting.
