Charm Square Tuffets For A Trendy Coffee Setting

Tuffets Made Easy From Charm Squares, Stack Until You Need Them.

Tuffets are trendy today for a casual drop-in for coffee from friends. Pretty tuffets are cozy and set a casual relaxed atmosphere. Make a third one and use as a table for coffee mugs and cookie plate. Quick to make using charm squares for the top, fun yardage for the base and sides, and decorative trim or piping to add a special touch.

The tuffet is a great addition to the decor. If using stash, have fun laying the fabric over a casual chair or sofa to get a nice match. Or contrast for a splash of new color. Even a single pouffe is a new piece in the room and a handy extra seat. Display next to a coffee table for a quaint cozy corner.

The tuffets are quite sturdy and two stack up nice and neat. Pull down and place ready for seating to have a quick coffee with a friend or casual aquaintence. Then easily put back after to clear floor space, nice and neat again! Lie back in your chair and put your feet up. A tuffet is a comfortable foot rest too. Display a tall leafy pot plant next to a tuffet for a modern feel.

The two hour tuffets sew up quick using charm squares, or use up 5″ scrap pieces and go ‘scrappy! A little yardage is all that’s needed for the base and tuffet side. Choose a decorative such as pom-pom trim for a special touch. Or leave the trim and just enjoy the charms. Makes a great house warming gift, or for a friend living in a small apartment. Handy in the sewing room too!
