Puffy Foam Information:

Puffy Foam

Puffy Foam is a high quality Ethylene Vinyl Acetate Film that is made specifically for use on home sewing machines. It is non-toxic, water-resistant and machine washable, but it is flammable and cannot be dry-cleaned.

There is virtually no waste because even very small pieces can be used. It perforates cleanly when stitched through, and makes the stitching stand well above the fabric. It is being widely seen commercially in headgear and washable wearables.

Twelve colors included:

White, Black, Tan, Red, Purple, Kelly Green, Royal Blue, Yellow, Orange, Pink, Gray and Forest Green
