I’m still enjoying making those fun YO-YO’s! Who knew? ! Indygo Junction has some very fun patterns… pictured is the one I used to make the cushions… lots of cool, HIP and creative concoctions! They kind of look like candy! Well… here’s the ‘really big show’ (said with the Red Skelton voice) on “MarveLes” Yo Yo’s! (that last part is just a rhyme!) LOL …it must be time to go to bed… my pumpkin carriage has arrived….
and a few more detail shots (it was fun taking pictures of them!) … love the hand-dyed VELVET!!! I also found you really have to OVERSTUFF the pin cushions to get them nice, fat and round… I really needed an extra-long needle to pull the button through the center and make it ‘poof’ better, and it would have made the job much easier on the hands, too…. add that to my shopping list! It’s been a VERY long time since I’ve stuffed anything… was quite glad to find a bag of stuffing — stuffed into a closet! ha ha.
and then a bit of cording, (which I just glued on cuz I couldn’t find the sharper needle needed to hand-sew) Oh well… but what a lovely pretty button I found from the… button STASH!
And here is what I did with those GREAT BIG Yo Yo’s… they jumped right onto this springy linen wall hanging… I free-motioned around the outside edges… LOVE the ‘ruffley-edged’ look it gave them!
