Mini-tuffet



Sherry's project for the weekend on our dollmaker's list was a mini-tuffet, or pin cushion made from a tuna or similar can. I only had a can from some water chestnuts, but it was about the same size. A small pineapple tin would work as well. The can is decoupaged with tissue paper, and the poof(!) on top is a fabric circle gathered and stuffed with fiberfill. Velvet ribbon around the can and a decorative button on the side, three wooden balls for feet and there you have it!
So quick and easy, I think I'll make another one!
