suffolk puffs

In my last post I was using a gadget for making Suffolk Puffs. Since them I have been googling....I spend way to much time on the internet, but I was looking for projects where I could use my Suffolk Puffs. Here's a collection of what i found.
Lots of ideas for jewellery, including necklaces, corsages and bracelets. I was inspired to make a bracelet, simply made, by sewing six puffs edge to edge and then adding a clasp.........

Thought this piggy brooch looked cute, from Sarah's Little Snippets (click on the following photos for the links)

 piggie brooch from Little Snippets:  

Puffs could be used for garlands (I can thank Helen for this idea) or wreaths. Here's an Easter garland by Sunshine Creations.

Yo yo garland!:

A good technique for textile art, as shown by Michelle Mischkulnig.

Another Michelle Mischkunig piece. Great textures!:

More inspiration found googling, was to use netting, tulle or even net curtains for yoyos as seen on the Blue Mountain Daisy blog.

I have just mentioned a few ideas but the possibilities are endless......I do like a Suffolk Puff! 
Till next time, Ali.
