Our exclusive Fabric Foundation is a full-size panel image of cut lines and sewing lines printed on broadcloth, designed by Sharyn. Included is one yard of fabric already printed with the eight foundation patterns required to complete one tuffet. You cut out the individual foundation patterns, each providing a sewing guide for one of the eight foundation pieces required to make an 18” diameter tuffet.
Sharyn conceived this method over many years of teaching tuffet classes and is a refinement on a custom plastic template. Her search for ways to ease “piecing frustration” resulted in this easy-to-use product that speeds the way to success and a perfect fit. The printed foundation makes the process of fitting your cover to the tuffet form a bit easier than the fusible interfacing product because the foundation fabric has its full stretch.
The Fabric Foundation can be used to create:
- 18” diameter pieced, eight-panel tuffets
- Single fabric, eight-panel tuffets
