The above are puffs that I sat and made yesterday. It was a dull, rainy day and I spent it all working on the puffs. They are a lot of fun. I made two kinds. The one is where you do French knots all around a large circle then draw it in like you would when making yoyos. This way when gathered all the knots are on top.
The other is cutwork done first then a small piece of whatever lace you want is put in the middle then gathered around like above. This time the cutwork and lace appear on top. I also did French Knots around the cutwork and really liked that look.
This class has been wonderful and I can't wait for the next one (Extended Embellishment) to start next week.
