3 more gifts to check off the list! these were easy but surprisingly time consuming. the little round pieces of fabric are called yo-yo’s. here’s a great tutorial if you’ve never made one before. sean was out late the other night playing cards, so i stayed up watching heroes online, making yo-yo’s. i made about 40 yo-yo’s in a few hours. then yesterday i stitched them to these hats and scarves along with some buttons i’ve had for years. i’ve had them for so long, in fact, that this girl used to play with them when she as a toddler!
i had a great find with these hats and scarves. i found them at kmart for $4.99 each! but wait…. it gets even better….. they were 40% off!!!!! yay for great deals!
on another note: i have a confession: i bought a few gifts online last night! i know i was/am committed to making gifts this year, but there are a few people who are too hard to make for! pheww, glad to get that off my chest. and while i’m in the confessing mood, remember my last post, where i so proudly stated that i’ve avoided temptation and not yet bought any new christmas decorations? well, that darn kmart and their martha stewart ornaments! but they were 40% off, too!
