This little project was inspired by these cuties at
Well, here's how that turned out:
Kind of blah. I think the little monograms are what make hers so cute, and I was flat running out of time to be cutting and hand stitching felt letters to fabric.
So, I did my best Winnie the Pooh:
Think, think, think...
And came up with this:
Yo-Yo's. I love them. I could make them all day long (thanks to this handy little gadget)
I simply stitched two yo-yo's together through their button centers,
slipped a loop of ribbon between them,
and ran a few stitches on the machine to fasten the ribbon.
Slip in a split ring and a printed tag and they are the perfect little thank you for the classroom assistants.
