Class Description: Join Joyce and Pat to make this beautiful little piece of furniture for your home! This sews up very quickly using one jelly roll. The first session teaches the piecing methods needed to create the top for your tuffet and the second session is to put the tuffet together with batting and plywood. This is a project that you will finish in just two sessions and each of them are amazing and look so different.

Class Supplies: to purchase pattern and ruler ahead of time, go to or get them in Class.

Day 1 :

  • Fabrics of choice. You will need 64, 2 ½ ” strips by half the width of fabric (a single strip is cut 2 ½” wide from selvage to selvage, then you cut it in half on the fold, which will give you 2 pieces that measure 2 ½” x 22”). Using a Bali Pop or Jelly Roll is great since they are already cut and color coordinated.
  • 1 1/4 yards Muslin
  • Sewing Machine and appropriate sewing supplies (if you have them, include a small cutting mat and rotary cutter)
  • Extra Fine point marker or pencil
  • Add-A-Quarter ruler – 12” works best


2nd class:

  • Your completed Tuffet top/cover (from 1st class)
  • Upholstery kit (available from instructor). Kit includes:

2 ½” button to cover

Dacron upholstery Batting

6” thick, 18” round, sculpted upholstery grade foam

18” round wooden board pre-drilled holes for feet and button

4 Tee Nuts

4 hang bolts

  • Wood legs or bun feet (are not included in kit). You will need 4 feet. Lowes has a nice variety of shapes and prices. Paint or stain these and then bring to 2nd class. You can also find a wide variety on the internet.
  • Fat Quarter to cover the bottom of the tuffet (there should also be enough fabric in a FQ to cover the button).
  • 6” square of coordinating fabric & cotton batting to cover your button.
  • Sharp scissors and/or snips, large head pins
