Well hi welcome to my little blog. Just my little corner of craftiness, sewing, and refashioning. I am also a newly gluten free eater so you have a little bit of recipes mixed in here.

Black sparkly and bubbly part 2

Well I had a ton of fabric leftover from my Black sparkly and bubbly dress I refashioned and wanted to do something with it, but nothing came to mind. Then one saturday after working early in the lab for a time point, I treated myself to a trip to Jo-Ann Fabrics to see what was on sale. I found this yo-yo maker 50% off and thought I would try it out.

I am not a yo-yo fan but recently I began to be converted b/c I have been seeing clothes with yo-yo's on them and thought they were cute. So maybe if I do it right, it could work. So I tried it out!

OMG first of all this thing was amazing! I could make yo-yo's so quickly and mindless, I loved it!!! I suggest if you want to make yo-yo's break down and buy this thing, it is so worth no frustration. I used all of fabric I had, cut out some circles (with my circular rotary cutter-love it too!!). And made yo-yo after yo-yo.

Next I added them to a black tank top I had that I got on clearance one day at Hancock fabrics. I layed them out to see what I wanted to do. I opted for the collar adornment. It just seemed to work. I also played around with some dark pearls I had but would wait to add them later...

I liked the way this looked so I began to sew. To sew them on to the top, I pinned them down and just added a few tacks of thread for each yo-yo and tacked between them too. I did one row at a time to reduce the amount of time I got stabbed with stray pins.

Next I added the dark pearls. I stuck to black ones in the middle of each yo-yo and scattered the gray ones among them all. Done!

Here is the product. :) I have a garment with yo-yo's on it that doesn't look childish or cheesy. I dig the collar. And I used up the rest of the fabric I had from that refashion.

Not bad for yo-yos! And here is to using up some of my leftover fabric. I'll give myself a +1 point for this project. :)

I also am not a big fan of yo-yo's but this is really cute. You may have changed my mind about them. I love the pearls too.

Again - a great job. I will have to look for a yo yo maker. I have two granddaughters and could probably find lots of fun ways to use it for their clothes and jewerly etc. Thanks for the idea and the great blog

If we evaluate the concept of the term really like, installing terms of a romantic marriage with a different, however as the feeling that is engendered should you have miltchmonkey a better romantic relationship on your own as well ( blank ) or perhaps as a sense of bigger unity with your family or maybe mankind ( space ) therefore it will become a lot more extraordinary that every one any person is seeking to have is adore.
