I have been seeing these cute awesome tuffets all over the web and I like them. I have this brand new Hassock (they don't sell these anymore), that a friend gave me, it had been tucked away for years. It's all leather and has a quilted star on top. Well I decided to work the pattern out. It's not hard and I will do a tut as I go along, so you can try it. I know there is a pattern for sale but really, it's not hard.
You can actually make a tuffet if you don't have a hassock or an old foot stool, it's no beg deal, just labor intensive. You just measure the circumference of the hassock, the radius, (which is half the diameter of the top) and make your pattern.
Here is one panel or wedge that I just made to test it. I think I got it. I will post more later.
I just counted my strips and I counted 9, oh well, 9 is good. I think you can make the strips any size you want for different effects.
