Suffolk puffs or fabric yo yo's .... either way how to make them neatly.

Good Morning All

It is the weekend and I hope that you are all enjoying your down time.  This is the time of the week where I show you a small video and today it is all about Suffolk Puffs/Yo Yo's.  This is a great video on how to make them properly so that they look extra neat and tidy.

Not a lot of history is known about these great pieces of stitchery but it is said that they started in Suffolk and around 1601....

They started off as making dolls and clowns for children and of course quilts with tiny scraps of fabric.  The picture on the right is of one such antique toy....

Well I can here foot steps above so people are waking so I am off to continue spoiling my husband and having fun with friends.

Until Monday.....

Anyway take a look at this great little video and enjoy and as always Happy Stitching!
