May Giveaway Day


I am totally mad about suffolk puffs (aka yoyos). Problem is, I'm not sure what to make using them for my next project. I've been doing Internet searches and there are so many cute things that people have made using suffolk puffs but i just can't decide what I should make. So for my giveaway I am going to let you decide.

To be in the running for my giveaway, all you have to do is comment on this post what you would like made out of suffolk puffs just for you. It can be anything you want. I will choose the most unique/original/interesting/appealing project. I may even pick more than one project if I have trouble deciding.

Here are some ideas for you: doll blanket, clothing, child's vest, scarf, headband, corsage, toy, cot or bassinette bedspread, garland, wreath, cushion. I will even consider making a larger sized bedspread if you can come up with an original pattern for me, If I choose to make a bedspread for someone, that person will have to be a bit patient though because it will take me a while to make. Feel free to specify favourite colours or patterns if you like and you can provide pictures if you have something very particular in mind. Please try and be as creative as you can be as I am feeling uninspired lately.

I will post internationally and you can enter as many times as you like. And feel free to follow me if you are in to yoyos cos I'm new to blogging and would love to score some followers!

Good luck! By the way, how awesome is giveaway day?! and how happy does my little girl look in the pile of suffolk puffs?!

I love the baby cot quilt you made, my baby boy would love to sink into that. andydanii@bigpond.com

Leah said...[Reply to comment]

Very cute bub with puffs :) I'd choose a scarf I think - just enough to add a bit of warmth around the neck without the itch of wool.

Xena said...[Reply to comment]

I would most likely use them to make a throw for the lounge

aeonie said...[Reply to comment]

I just saw an old chair upholstered in suffolk puffs!! Looked amazing! But don't worry ... that is not my suggestion :) I would love to see a collection of colourful suffolk puffs decorating a bag (which I could keep my crochet in and show off on the train ride to work each day)!

angelina said...[Reply to comment]

i 'd make a round long pillow covering.

Tracey said...[Reply to comment]

mm. not sure how original this is, but I have indeed always wanted to make a yo yo blanket for my craft room/guest room sofa bed. Ok, not original, but it is sincere!

Tracey said...[Reply to comment]

just the name is fun - suffolk puffs. I think I would put them on a neutral flecked cushion cover in a clump of 5-9 together in one corner. :)

lebenstraum said...[Reply to comment]

I would make a Babyblanket, cause my little Babygirl would love to play with it!

Oh wow! I have just started making these and I'm addicted too. They're just so fun and wonderful.

I would love a pair of matching cushion covers for our book reading couch.

Thanks for running this amazing giveaway.

I've always loved the clown dolls, ever since I had a childhood storybook about a young girl who made one with her mother.

Leah said...[Reply to comment]

Not original at all but am getting ready to move my little boy into a big boy bed. Looking at all the colors on his quilt just might keep him in bed long enough to sleep. :)

La Yen said...[Reply to comment]

I think some placemats for the table. Or I would just throw them in the air like giant confetti and let my kid have a party!

Kelly said...[Reply to comment]

This may seem out of reach, but I have wanted for a very LOOOOONG time a quilt with different prints. Almost like a patchwork quilt. Something like this kind of idea...

Isnt that AMAZING???! I like bright, vibrant fun colors, not like the old time quilts, lol! I would even be willing to help with any shipping costs!

Thanks for doing this!!

Sally said...[Reply to comment]

I'd use them as part of an applique - flowers or maybe owl eyes... depends on the print.
Thanks so much for the chance to win.

I think that they would make a really cute a-line skirt for a little girl. I'd love one for DD so that I can pair it with some stripy tights.

I love yo-yo's. I have always wanted to make a table cover from yo-yo's, but never made enough to make that project. I've only used them as flowers on quilts. Make something fun!

Moa said...[Reply to comment]

a cover for my sewing machine and my overlocker!

Moa said...[Reply to comment]

or even a bag to store all my projects in!

Danielle @ BurlapWorks.com said...[Reply to comment]

Your little girl is adorable! It would be so fun to have a headband made for me with 2 matching hairclips for my daughter (she's turning 2). Something fun for the hair that we could wear at the same time!

Dusty said...[Reply to comment]

What a darling little baby!

I think you could make a darling little girl's jumper (I have a feeling Australians have a different name for them - not a sweater, a sleeveless dress that's meant to be worn over a top - maybe pinafore?)

Something kind of like this:
http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/vivienne-toddler-jumper (but, you know, made of puffs sewn together) in girly-girl colors.

Shana said...[Reply to comment]

I think you should make a snuggle blanket for a toddler. My son would love to snuggle with one.

B @ Sweet Limes said...[Reply to comment]

I just about died when I saw how many yo-yos you have there! Wow. I'd make a skirt for my daughter actually. Wouldn't that be darling? And, if there were extras I'd make a pillow because my great grandma had one like that when I was little and it would be a sweet reminder of her.

Recently I made a couple and put them on a card for a friend though. Totally cute that way too.

limes.sweet(at)gmail(got)com

Kelly said...[Reply to comment]

I would love a pillow to spruce up my very beige couch. I need some color! :) Thanks for the giveaway!

Dani said...[Reply to comment]

Ok, I am not very original but I think that the quilts made with the puffs are amazing. They remind me of my grandmother and the women that came before her. They just scream history to me and love.

But doing a clutch or a purse in them would be fun as well and I am sure much faster. :-)

MossyOakLane said...[Reply to comment]

I just love to decorate everything with them! Hats, sweaters, headbands, pants! add some leaves and they look like flowers.

Leigh said...[Reply to comment]

Somewhere in blog land, I once saw a little girl skirt with yoyos all around the hem. I love the idea and I keep meaning to try it. What I'd do is do one color all around, and then do a few rows of different colors- Maybe even a rainbow! A row of red at the hem, then a row of orange, then yellow, etc! And I think I will start calling them suffolk puffs, that's so much cuter than yoyos!

Rebecca said...[Reply to comment]

Beautiful stuff!

The Zoo Keeper-ette said...[Reply to comment]

LOVE the photo :) Too cute :) And I would just love the yo-yos to make some projects with other pieces I have :) I'd probably combine them to make a necklace :) Thanks!

I'd love anything to be made with owls on it! I have a strange obsession with owls, so even if you could make an owl out of the puffs!

shelia said...[Reply to comment]

well....personally i'd love to have a snuggly lap quilt...perfect time to look at all the little poofs while i'm lounging :)

JK Creations said...[Reply to comment]

I'd love a headband..that would be fun!

Willa said...[Reply to comment]

vest for a woman

Tara said...[Reply to comment]

I love yo-yos too, but don't have the ability to make them. I think a bed spread made to look like a Chinese checkers board would be AWESOME!!! I was thinking of a pillow top, but I don't know if you can make yo-yos small enough for a pillow size. I'm going to think of some more ideas too! Maybe a Twister mat bed spread? lol! This is fun--thanks so much for the chance to win!

Beverly @ FlamingoToes.com said...[Reply to comment]

This is so fun! I have always wanted a yo-yo table runner! I think that would be so fun on my dining table.
Thanks for the chance to win!

sewbee2 said...[Reply to comment]

Those puffs have intrigued me for a long time. I do something similar with crochet that ends up being afghans. I would like a vest, a very colorful one to be used with almost every pair of slacks. My shoulders really like a bit of warmth now that I am older. Marion at:

Rosie said...[Reply to comment]

I never knew what those were called! Thanks for teaching me something new today! :) I could think of several things that I would love to have out of those puffs! From smaller things like throw pillow covers to a ncie cover for my Kitchen Aid mixer, to a table cloth, to a king bed spread! lol So mamy possibilities! Thanks so much for posting this! Will be checking back in! :)

such a great photo! i'd love a garland for sure.
thanks for giving!

Jessica Jo said...[Reply to comment]

Actually, what I want to do with Yoyos mostly is just use them for bows on packages. I'm trying to get out of the paper disposable wrapping gift thing we americans are all into and I think yoyos would make great bows!

ItsMeBeth said...[Reply to comment]

i would make a bracelet/ necklace. a corsage, maybe even a quilt of some sort.

Mary said...[Reply to comment]

I saw a little A-line dress once on Craftster that was covered with yoyos (suffolk puffs!). So adorable! I share your fondness for the yoyo, but I haven't gotten ambitious enough to try that one YET! :)

Cristi said...[Reply to comment]

The pic of your babe playing in them makes me want a large rug made out of them for my little one to play on!! My hubby, baby, and I live in a college dorm (kinda weird, I know) and it's just concrete under the carpet...he'd love to play on something squishy!

Thanks for the chance to win!!

going kiwi said...[Reply to comment]

A doll blanket or throw would be great. How fun! Thanks for the giveaway

missbossypants said...[Reply to comment]

I would love a wall hanging made of yoyos in variarious gradations of the rainbow (like a paintbox quilt, I think they're called).
What a generous giveaway!!!
Thanks for the chance to win!

Monica said...[Reply to comment]

Love, love, love yo-yo's!! I would like a flat (about 2" thick) long pillow (about 3' X 5') for my daughter's window seat...

StephanieS said...[Reply to comment]

I like how they put the yoyos together to look like a flower. Like the photo here http://www.flickr.com/photos/the_sampler/3797741185/
or here http://greetingarts.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/p71400721.jpg
You could make a blanket or do an application on a linen towel. I would love the blanket! Thanks for the chance to win.

Meadow said...[Reply to comment]

Pillow covers for my new deck furniture (assuming, of course, that our deck gets built on schedule and I get to buy furniture...)

And your little girl looks incredibly happy (and cute) on the pile!

Amy Cook-Kane said...[Reply to comment]

They would looks so cute on the car seat cover I am making my daughter. Basically it is a blanket that will attach to the handle of the car seat to keep the wind out (or to stop the people from staring at her!).

Rachel C said...[Reply to comment]

I think a baby blanket would be cute, but more like a snuggle blankie and not an actual blanket to cover up with. You could make one shaped like a cupcake with black and white on the bottom and pink for the frosting. That would be extra cute!
Thanks for the great giveaway!

Alisa said...[Reply to comment]

Ohhh a scarf and matching tote please. Why not add some clips to be worn on shoes or in a ponytail. I love the picture, so very cute.

Kim said...[Reply to comment]

That's alot of yo-yos. I woud love to see it made into a handbag.

Jimi C.F. Newkirk said...[Reply to comment]

I would love a puff quilt that my 3 month old baby boy can call his "love"...that blanket that a child can't go anywhere without!! All those colors and designs could become such a learning tool!!

WOW, what a wonderful idea!
I'm deeply impressed.

Naomi said...[Reply to comment]

A bedspread would be an amazing feat! You're very patient to make up all those yoyos (I haven't tried it yet because it sounds time consuming!) Would they make a nice pin cushion?

tscd said...[Reply to comment]

Placemats for the table, I think. I love the phrase 'suffolk puffs'

Mari said...[Reply to comment]

Hmmm I'm afraid I'm not entirely original either as I've seen these made into a garland and I just fell in love. All those vintage pinks and rose patterns...ohhh it was delish, sure would like one too! I make puffs to embellish my buntings.
Thx for sharing

Hui-Wearn said...[Reply to comment]

hwtuan[at]hotmail[dot]com

how about a suffolk puffs bib necklace? and matching earrings?

Fiona said...[Reply to comment]

I can't say its original, but I'd make a quilt. I can always remember my nanna having a suffolk puff quilt with matching round pillows. Wow, the memories. Would like to snuggle like that again!!

handmadehappiness said...[Reply to comment]

i have a rocking chair that is begging for a lovely throw not to exciting sorry... maybe you could make a mobile add some bell's and beads..... for your wee ones room & once again my sewing room.... :)))
i am going to go "follow you i am having a giveaway you might like for the wee one if you fancy a wee look xx

Joey said...[Reply to comment]

A bag - not very original but I would love it.

Stephanie and Carlos said...[Reply to comment]

That is insane!! Oh My Golly Me!!

Ok thinking... I would make a heap of naughts and crosses games to give as birthday and Christmas presents!! Actually that's a pretty awesome idea!! The yoyo's would be the naughts incase you were wondering HEHE...

xo Steph

Hand bags!

by Daisy said...[Reply to comment]

the cutest baby ever!! and what a great giveaway! it think a simple scarf would do, because you can take it everywhere and the puffs are already so beaytiful that there's no need to make a complicated piece.
thank you for the giveaway!

Cinnamon said...[Reply to comment]

I had a clown and an elephant made of yoyos when I was little and just thought they were the best to play with, and I bet my little one's would love them too. If it was for me though, I would love a throw made out of them.

Jingle said...[Reply to comment]

I think a bed spread or blanket would be absolutely gorgeous in simple 'stripes' of red and turquoise yoyos. The special interest would come in because you could use lots of different patterns (use those scraps! Yay! LOL!) in those colors to bring it all together. Oh, that would be SO fabulous! I wonder if I could find one of those out there somewhere.... jinglesells at gmail dot com

I would hate to take those away from the sweet baby!

What about making them into lanterns? I mean I would love a holy blanket made of them, but they could be really neat over little strings of lights.

A headband or scarf would be cool!

Cute! I would love a pillow cover made from yoyos... I should start making a stack myself!

CMEH said...[Reply to comment]

OK so I love quilts and I love yoyo's myself.... I think that a bedspread/quilt is what you should make is a quilt... I have been thinking about this for a while... hexagon quilts are cool.... so making hexagon shapes out of the same color hexagons (maybe with a different color in the center)..... HOW COOL WOULD THAT BE????

OR circle quilt like with yoyo's... swirls or circles with the yoyos would also be nice... I would he HAPPY to draw you out a design if you would like to chat about it more... because I have been thinking about this for a while.... :)

By the way yoyo garland looks WONDERFUL.... you can coordinate colors for seasons.... christmas used as tree trimming works great... halloween bunting with them is also very cute!

I am really excited about the giveaway and I am open to chat more too..... thanks for a fun giveaway!

kelliemorgan said...[Reply to comment]

Lovely! My aunt has an antique quilt that is yo-yos connected at four points to make a see-through coverlet of sorts. I don't have a pattern, but could get you a picture of it if that would help. It is adorable and so timeless. Love the idea of that with a variety of fabrics. This is wonderful. Thanks

That is the biggest pile of yoyos I've ever seen. I haven't made any of these because I'm sure i will get addicted. I'm a brooch girl so I would a... brooch. I'm your newest blog follower, I'm also having a giveaway if you get the chance to pop over.
and your bubba looks adorable

Deb - Two Cheeky Monkeys said...[Reply to comment]

Your little one looks so happy and sweet playing in that pile of Suffolk puffs!

I think a set of place mats, coasters and a table topper made from suffolk puffs would be very fun and colourful!

emma said...[Reply to comment]

you are good offering to make a project for someone, lucky winner! I think these would look really lovely as a festive garland, perhaps a christmassy one for the tree?

grendelskin said...[Reply to comment]

I love this pattern for a toy dragon but have never made it yet:

Isn't he cute? Almost as cute as your puff-baby!

Katrina said...[Reply to comment]

Wow you have been very busy! great work :)
I would love a colourful and fun picnic blanket made of them ....or just decorating reusable food bags.
I'm sure the little ones (and us big ones) would love picnicing and camping even more with a cute and comfy blanket to play on. I made a big suffolk puff for my dog as a toy and now him and the little ones fight over it... maybe I should make more!? I would be more then happy to pay postage for something so wonderful even in a give away!!!

Rainbow JenJen said...[Reply to comment]

Hmm, well I love rainbows, so a rainbow patterned blanket to keep on the back of the couch would be lovely! Something to show off to guests, and snuggle in on cold winter nights

Rainbow JenJen said...[Reply to comment]

Decorating a nice big muma bag....covering it all over but making flower patterns, like daisys with a middle colour surrounded by the petal colours, then the flowers surrounded by a different all over bag colouring to define the flowers.
Oh and my other idea for the rainbow blanket....an actual rainbow shape on it, length ways, then surrounded by more solid colouring to define the rainbow ;)

Rainbow JenJen said...[Reply to comment]

Oh, an apron! Some sort of pattern with them to make the bib part look like a big cupcake!

Rainbow JenJen said...[Reply to comment]

A tv cover!
I am trying to reduce my families tv time, but the tv is such a big focus of the lounge room, I have been thinking of making a slip cover for it(ours is flat screen).
I think something that just hugs the sides a bit and then ties off at the back, so it doesnt over heat the electronics. With some sort of beautiful mural type design on the front, such as a flower garden, rainbow, or just random pattern...maybe even a mock of the test pattern off sbs, lol ;)

Rainbow JenJen said...[Reply to comment]

A pedastal fan cover....for when it's not in use in the cooler weather....it could be made into a big funky flower!

Anonymous said...[Reply to comment]

I would either make an asymetrical table runner or a Chirstmas garland out of those. I would have a hard time choosing which.

stellato_escuro (at) hotmail dot com

Kristen said...[Reply to comment]

I've made a table runner with these before, so I know the time it takes. A scrappy table runner is what I would go for since you can look at it everyday! A throw or larger would truly be a labor of love!

Anyway, I plan on making (laughing, because I'm a planner, not a doer) a coverlet with the the sides of the yoyo's sewn together... Hey, I found a flickr group for them! http://www.flickr.com/photos/knittingand/sets/72157600169964738/

Hello: I love yoyos and have never heard them called suffolk puffs before. It is a cute name. I wonder where it came from? anyway, I like the idea of a pillow cover or how about a table runner. I would even do the sewing together of them if you just wanted to send the puffs. In the past I have made dolls and Christmas ornaments with them. I would love to win. Thanks for the chance.

I LOVE yo yos!!! I remember as a child seeing a bedcover made with them and thinking that someday I would have to make that. It was done as flowers with colored centers surrounded by lots of green. I still think that someday I will tackle it so that is my choice.

I would love a bedspread made with yoyos arranged like a grandmothers flower garden hexagons!

I would use them to make a mobile for my son to put over his crib. Your daughter looks about the same age as him. Isn't this a fun time developmentally?!?

Ha! Is the prize all those yoyos???? I have a project in a grocery bag that I NEED to start soon, it is for a table cloth for the kitchen. I wanted rusts, golds, sage and fern greens a few browns thrown in, sort of tuscany like? Anyway, if I had all those, that's what I would make a table cloth...saw one in a movie and fell in love! :)

I would LOVE a yoyo scarf. Or a shirt embellished with yoyos across the neckline and down the front. Yummy! And, yes, your little one is adorable! How old is she? She is so SMILEY!

i bought a yoyo make to use up those scraps but have yet to try it. I would make throw pillow covers out of them, maybe even baste them into a quilt top. how fun, what a nice stash you have!!

I would love to see a bedspread made out of those or for ease a lap quilt.

How about a set of placemats? In a mix of soft colors and browns...!
I'm a jewelry designer and love yo-yo's too! I have been wanting to make some yo-yo necklaces for too long now... this summer I hope :)
