A tuffet, pouffe, or hassock is a piece of furniture used as a footstool or low seat. It is distinguished from a stool in that it is completely covered in cloth so that no legs are visible, and is essentially a large hard cushion that may have an internal wooden frame to give it more rigidity.
We will include the base, the feet, button, the foam/batting. All you need is your fabric selection, the pattern and the ruler. Everyone will be impressed by your new quilted foot stool - we bet you won't make just one, especially when we supply you with a kit and make it even easier for you!
