Happy Hours Sewing!

I’ve spent some time cutting out a pile of white cotton circles, ready for me to spend some happy hours sewing!

Making a Suffolk puff is easy. All you have to do is cut out circles of fabric. The size of the circle that I am using is 6.5cm in diametre and it creates a Suffolk puff that is 3cm in diametre. I think they are looking like little peppermints!!

Using a small needle, start by stitching a few little stitches in one spot to make your thread firm, then using running stitch go around the edge.

Once you have completed running stitch all around the edge, draw the thread up into a little bag.

To finish off, make a few little stitches in one spot so the stitches can’t come undone.

Voila!!! One Suffolk Puff!! Now repeat over and over again!! Once you have enough of the little treasures, sew them together to form a throw/quilt. I will show you that stage later.

Until next time.
