Suffolk puffs

I've just discovered Suffolk puffs! So easy to make and a great way to use up fabric scraps!
First cut out out circles of fabric - mine measured about 10cm
Next do a running stitch around the perimeter of the circle and gather together to form wee puffs
They're so quick to make and quite addictive.
It doesn't take long to have a pile of puffs
Next sew the puffs together in any combination to make a quilt or a whole host of other things, such as embellishments, brooches, clothes etc.
The more imaginative the fabric and material used, different effects will be achieved.
These could even be made using old plastic bags!

OT helped to rummage through the fabric box!!
