Description

Using oxford cloth and a hodgepodge assortment of buttons, I used two different suffolk puffs to create a flower. Suffolk puffs {also called Yo-Yo’s} were popular in the 30’s and 40’s to embellish quilts, tee shirts, hair accessories, and so on.

I first started making these about a year ago and am finally getting them on here again.

    Your photography is lovely, was it just a window at the side, or did you use lights?
