Craft Oops!

Ever have one of those funny craft moments when you realize that what you thought you were going to make is entirely different than what you end up holding in your hands? Well, I had one of those moments over the weekend. I was going to take these beautiful fabric scraps...

And make some tiny fabric yo-yos... which, by the way, I've never made before, but how hard could it be, right? Apparently I need to read Crafting for Dummies, because what I came up with resembled something more like a small wad of fabric. Pointers anyone? But, refusing to do anything except make lemonade out of lemons, I decided that the small wads of fabric sort of looked like small flowers. Thirty minutes and 3 fingers covered in super glue later...

I made the cutest little barrette! I even have requests for a few more. I'm going to make several to put into my new Etsy shop that I'm working on. Stay tuned for the grand opening!


  1. Your yo yos are adorable! I think you just needed to make them flatter -- but I like what you did! Thank you for your comment on my blog, too, about Hoarders. Yes, it does make me feel like the best housekeeper ever!!

  2. Thanks Laurie. I think I started out with a circle that was too small. Impossible to flatten!
