Yo-yo embellishment

Do you remember the little yellow sundress I made my Tiddly Toes?

This one.....


It needed the straps moved in at the back to stop it slipping off of her shoulders.

Once I'd done that....it just looked bare somehow.  What do you think?


I had some sweet little Bee buttons, but they were too small on their own.......
...think.........EUREKA!

Yo-yo's....no, not the toy, the Suffolk Puff type!

I've never made these before so decided to chart the adventure to share with you!

It started like this.......


I made a running stitch all the way around the edge (think I should have folded that over to give a neat edge....but it doesn't show!)......


Once you've gone the whole way round like this......


Pull it firmly so that it looks like this............


Then I popped my little Bee button in the centre and sewed through all the layers into position.......


....and here it is........Ta-Dah!


That Sun-Shiney day seems like decades ago.... all it seems to have done since is rain!

But that's quite a good excuse to stay in and craft!

Hope you enjoyed sharing this little journey....I think I'll be back soon with....some cooking!

Until then, take care
