Just in the nick of time.
I ordered my Tuffet pattern quite some time ago. It seems it has gone the way of a wayward reindeer, as it has yet to make it to my house. I suppose it's having a real good time somewhere with my parent's Christmas presents, also having not yet made it to our house. Merry Christmas from the US Postal System.
In the interim, I have made do.
Behold, my wannabe tuffets. They're cute. They're sassy. They're my leftover scraps from my September Schnibbles quilt. And because my leftover scraps were wovens, my tuffets are soft and cozy. I just want to rub them on my cheek. Ok, maybe I have. Just a little.
Since I didn't have a pattern to go by, I winged it on my own. Winged? Wung? I really wanted to add a little piping around them, but couldn't find a cording the right size. Small-town living rocks! But believe you me, I will be shopping online for some fancy piping cording, because I think it would look adorable. And I WILL be making some more of these. After all, I still have the pattern coming. So for now, I made a little flange-type thing around my tuffets to make them extra cute. I think it worked. They're so cute, I could just eat them up with a spoon for a New Year's Eve snack!
I really want to thank Sherri and Sinta for having the kindness and forethought to pick something as small as these itty bitty Tuffets for December's Schnibbles challenge. These were all I could eke out, amongst the self-inflicted chaos of December. I thank you. My sanity thanks you. And believe me, anyone who crossed my path thanks you too.
