February 9, 2017 Finished Vintage Apron, Clover Yo Yo Flowers, Shamrock, Kanzashi Flower Maker, Clover Heart Yo Yo Maker

Hello All,

Happy Thursday, it's another rainy day. 

Many of the rainy days I work on my crafting, but some of them I just feel lazy. I do embroidery on those days and now I found these Clover Craft Yo Yo Makers and Flower Makers. 
I have done many Yo Yo crafts in the past.
I have been making these this week instead of working on any quilts. I don't know why. I'm just getting used to making them, so they are not perfect yet!

 I think I'm going to change the leaves on this, I have not attached them yet. I am not sure if I am making a wreath or decorating a new purse, tote or something like that.
Cute Hearts
 Large Shamrock. I found this yo yo maker hard. It's hard to get them into the correct shape and the large Shamrock you have to have such a long thread, the thread has to be continuous without rethreading. I had a lot of knots. I think I will use thread conditioner next time.

I was searching for my old blog and I found it. I was trying to find table runners I made with the round yo-yo's. I did not use the clover product those times. I made my own yo-yo's pattern. It' just a circle and you sew around the circle and then cut the thread and pull up and gather and it makes a yo-yo. But I do think I love the clover yo yo makers. They are great because it's a lot faster the way it works with the cutting process and saving time is always great.

 this is how my Vintage Apron Turned Out.
I did finish it this week. It was kind of hard to make. Well, not hard just a lot of work. But I love the end result. Look my little Effie has her head poking through. She loves everything I make and when I put things I make on the floor she jumps right on it. This time I would not let her stand on it, because I wanted to photograph the apron.

This will be last post for a few weeks or so. I am going camping and I need to get to work on my quilts.

Have a Happy Valentine's Day!

  1. I have a few of those flower makers too, one I haven't even tried yet, I really need to break it out and see if I can figure them out. Looks like you have a good amount going there. I hope you have a great time and great weather on your camping trip!
