If you're thinking of making tuffets too, I have a bit of advice...save every little scrap! For some reason, I guess a cutting error (gasp! Me?!), I didn't have enough of the light dot fabric for the checkerboard border...so I had to piece two one-inch squares (see the lower-right square). Good times!
Love U. To make it a little pillow, I filled it with regular poly filling. It's very light and soft. ♥
Have a wonderful cozy day if you can!
