So what is Fofucha? Well, I speak Spanish and not Portuguese. Some words are very similar between language but this one left me clueless. I was able to find a definition on the internet but I decided to go to a very good source. My Brazilian neighbor! So, Fofucha is a Brazilian word. It means "super cute" and since it ends with an "a" it's in female context. Fofuchas are becoming increasingly popular in Brazil ( I believe that is where the actual craft technique originated) and the rest of South America. Very little of them are known in the US for now.
