There are few things so special as a personal, handmade gift. And for makers like us, this means thinking about what gifts we want to make for our loved ones long before Christmas Eve trips to the mall for last minute shopping sprees. Here at American Quilter’s Society, we have sewing projects perfect for anyone on your list!

Try something different! Make a washable floor canvas in gorgeous blues and gray to give your floor a fresh new look. The kit includes all the 100% cotton canvas fabric from Premier Prints needed to make the approximately 30″ x 51″ floor canvas top, backing, and binding; purchase batting (40″ x 54″) separately. The floor canvas pattern is featured in the January 2019 issue of American Quilter.
The marvelous Mini Tuffet may be small, but it’s mighty. This kit, designed by Sharyn Cole, features everything you need to create a one-of-a-kind 8″ Tuffet. Inside the box, you will find your foam, batting, button kit, gathering cord, wood base, wooden bun feet, free pattern, and instruction booklet. All of the hardware is already installed for you. Just add fabric, a few notions, and a bit of imagination.
Add a touch of whimsy to your home! The pattern includes the Fabric Foundation and detailed step-by-step photographic instructions for the flip and sew method of construction, along with step-by-step wooden tuffet form instructions. The printed fabric foundation makes the process of fitting your cover to the tuffet form a bit easier than the fusible interfacing product. All you need to complete your first tuffet is the pattern, a finishing kit with feet, and the fabric of your choice. The pattern, designed by Sharyn Cole, is used in her Let’s Make a Tuffet iquilt online class. The finished tuffet measures 18″ in diameter.
Complete your tuffet with this finishing kit made of high quality, furniture-grade components. This kit includes stained feet, plywood circle, upholstery foam and batting, 2½ button, and heavy duty cords for installation. You can expect your tuffet to keep its shape and last, just like quality furniture.
