Since then, I've been collecting fabrics to make different types of tuffets. I have some neckties, some leather scraps, and more silk. But I just had to try to make one from minky fabric.
I know some people don't like working with Minky because of the shedding which is really just from where you cut the fabric -- once that's done, the fabric itself doesn't actually shed). To them I say, "get thee a lint roller!" Of course, I don't mind glitter everywhere either. Personally, I love Minky, and using it just means it's time to vacuum my sewing room.
I got all of these wonderful fabric from Quilt-agious in Mukwonago, Wisconsin. They've put together the Minky for the tuffet top in kits (I'm not sure if there is enough for the bottom in their kits, fyi). Click here to contact them if you want to make your own!
