I experimented with this faux leather fabric. This is a different style tuffet in that it does not have multiple strips; instead it has larger panels. Just prove to be challenging in that the "shoulders" don't lie as flat as I would like them to. I did do some trimming and adjusting which yielded a more rounded top than usual.
I also use decorative nailhead brads on the bottom instead of the typical staples. They were challenging in their own way! I'm glad I did it, though. I learned a lot on this tuffet.
