    HERE'S HOW (PART 1) 1. 2. & 3. Trace the wood tuffet base on paper, cut out and fold in quarters 4. 5. & 6. Mark the quarter lines on the wood base with the pattern, measure the width of the tuffet feet and mark their placement on the drawn quartered lines 7. Drill holes where you marked making sure the hole is the same size of the furniture leg screws 8. 9. & 10. Unfold the batting, place the foam in the center and glue the base on top of the foam with E-6000 Fabri-Fuse 10. & 11. Pull the batting over the foam and evenly staple it around the tuffet working from opposite side to opposite side to make sure that it's even all the way around 12. Trim off the excess batting 13. Flip the tuffet and pin the fabric around it so that it's stable 14. Staple the four fabric corners just over the edge of the batting 15. Pull the fabric (in between the stapled corners) over the batting and staple them in place

    HERE'S HOW (PART 2) 16. & 17. Staple the excess fabric evenly on to the wood base and trim off all of the excess Optional: Cover the base of the undersides of the tuffet 18. Use the wood base paper pattern to cut out fabric for the underside 19. 20. & 21. Fold the pattern in quarters, cut off 1" from the edge then trace it on poster board and cut out 22. & 23. Pin the smaller poster board circle to the fabric and press around the edges 24. Glue the ironed fabric to the underside of the tuffet with more E-6000 Fabri-Fuse 25. Paint the feet with a color of Americana Decor Outdoor Living that matches your fabric. I chose Sunset 26. Cut a tiny hole in the underside fabric over each hole that you drilled in the base 27. Stick a paint brush handle through the attachment plate and the hole to align them perfectly 28. & 29. Screw on the attachment plates for the feet and then screw in the legs 30. Add trim around the base with E-6000 Fabri-Fuse and pin in place until it dries Done!
