Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet......

Eating her curds and whey
Along came a spider
Who sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away.....

All day yesterday while I was putting together my latest project I had the 'Little Miss Muffet' nursery rhyme stuck in my head.


You may remember some fabric pieces that were sitting on the ironing board when I showed you a glimpse of my new sewing room.  They were pieces for the front of what I like to call a 'tuffet' cushion which my eldest daughter asked me to make for her to put in her bedroom at our new house.


The pattern I used is a free tutorial pattern from Allison Harris at Cluck Cluck Sew.  Allison calls it a 'sprocket pillow' and the pattern comes in two sizes.  I made the large version and I think I stuffed it a lot fuller than Allison which is, I think, what gives it its more 'tuffety' (yes, that is a word!) appearance.


There is also a really cute 'sprocket pincushion' tutorial on Allison's blog which looks like a lot of fun to make.... maybe my next project?  Have a good week!

  2. Love it! Ottoman sized tuffets are all the rage around here, but I just don't have the space for one. This cushion might be the perfect compromise.

  12. I had to look for this rhyme as I didn't know it... hope I won't have it stuck in my head for the rest of the day ;-)! The pincushion project looks really fun to make. And there's no such thing as too many pincushions, isn't it? Regards, Ariadna.
