Here’s the problem, one red linen skirt ruined by white board pen which one lovely pupil had thought highly funny to write along the edge of the table so when I lent against it ….
Here is my solution to the problem. Suffolk puffs which seem to be very popular at the moment. I chosen to make mine from some black satin I had in my stash.
I cut three circles from the satin.
I did a running stitch about 3mm from the edge
Then pulled tight and double knotted.
I then sewed them onto the skirt with a black button at the centre of each
I then finished of the design with a simple line of running stitch in double thread of black embroidery thread.
