So I decided to try making some of the fabric yoyos myself. They are so easy and I could make one in about 5 minutes. So if I do decide to make this quilt I can at least make the yoyos myself and maybe get some help with the quilt part. Here is my attempt at making yoyos.
I am going to make more and use them to make a table runner for the sideboard I got for Christmas (Thanks Mum). That should be a nice and bright feature for the top and then I will add the candlesticks I painted at the start of the blog.
While I was looking for instructions on how to make yoyos, I found this great project photo on pinterest.
Doing a search for yoyos on Pinterest certainly brings up some amazing finds such as a skirt made of yoyos and the following.
I think this chair comes from http://threadandthrift.blogspot.com.au/, I haven't yet found it on there but it looks like an interesting site so I will be going back later to look.
I am not sure of the original sources for these but will keep looking.
I think these yoyos are a great way to use up fabric scraps. I am hoping I have enough scraps to make my table runner without having to buy anything so fingers crossed.
It looks like a lovely summer day here so I should head out to the shed and keep working on the kitchen hutch that has sat neglected over the last few weeks. I really want to see it finished by the end of January so I better get a move on.
