Class Description


Instructor: Lisa Kelsen 2 Sessions [First session 3 hours, Second session 4 hours]

Class Fee: $90.00

Skill Level: ** Confident Beginner and Beyond

Tuffets are a touch of whimsy for your home that blend with all decors and bridge the

gap between design and function. In addition to being heirloom home accents, they

make treasured gifts for special occasions including weddings, new babies,

 anniversaries and special birthdays. 


Choose just (8) 1/4 yard cuts or a Jelly Roll and during the first session, learn to sew a

beautiful tuffet cover. During the second-class session, turn that cover into an upholstered footstool. Come to class with 64 (2” x 21”) strips in fabrics of your choice (Jelly roll is perfect) or a quicker sew -32(3” x 21”) strips along with the other supplies on your supply list.


A Tuffet Finishing Kit includes a “furniture quality”, 17” diameter wood round, drilled and

sanded, upholstery foam,18” circle/ 6” deep, Dacron batting 40” square, half dome 2

1/2” button form, t-nuts, 25 upholstery tacks, upholstery tacks, gathering cords and your choice of bun feet. The Finishing Kit fee is $150.00


The Finishing Kit fee of $150.00 is payable to the instructor at the first class session (this is in addition to your class fee and supplies needed to make one tuffet). 

Although this is Confident Beginner and Beyond class, you will need to have working

knowledge of your sewing machine, be able to thread it, adjust tension and adjust stitch

width and selection. Your sewing machine must also do a zig zag stitch in order to

complete the project. The first session is 3 hours (you will be sewing on your sewing

machine) and the second session is 4 hours (you will be upholstering and assembling

your tuffet.)


Please note, class fees do not include patterns or materials. Please be sure to obtain

your supplies prior to your class as there is not time built into the class for shopping.

Please note there will be some preparation before class (ironing fusible pattern onto

muslin and cutting out pattern templates-cut just outside the line) and some sewing to complete during the week between classes.


You will take home a completed Tuffet at the end of your second session!

Finishing Kit: $150 due at the time of first class/Supply list will be emailed.
