Yo Yo Quilting & Sewing

Feed Sack Yo Yo's Fun To Make!

My circles Ive got cut out so far.

Very handy plastic "yo yo makers". They help you to make different sizes, even hearts!

Yards and yards of Easter fabric that I found at a sale.

Daisy Kingdom patterns, about 15 of them!

Your doll even gets a dress:)

Easter basket made from cloth, .50 cent at a sale this past weekend.

Sweet Easter chick vase from a benefit sale this weekend.

Very simple table runner found for a dollar this weekend. I put it on my stained up piano bench :)

Tin sign paid a dollar for it at a sale this past weekend.

Goodwill find $2.00

These are made by Boyd Bears, Raggedy Ann & Andy. Ordered off of Ebay 4.99. plus shipping.
Its been a overdue post I know. Ive been trying to do something crafty. I decided to start a yo yo quilt. I know I can do this because I have plenty of feed sack fabric. I do not want to use all of my feed sack fabrics cause I intend on making doll clothes and stuff out of some of it. I am going to get on ebay and buy some feed sacks or scraps to have a variety of yo yo's. I purchased these yo yo makers from Hobby Lobby. I have a jumbo yo yo, a heart yo yo, a large yo yo, and a mini yo yo maker. I had a medium sized one but my daughter lost it. I have been cutting out the circles. I did do a few samples just to show you what they look like. I went to alot of sales this past weekend and I racked up on some nice items. One thing I found was yards and yards of this Easter fabric. There are 3 different patterns of this fabric. This sale was for a young man that has a rare brain tumor. The items at the sale did not have prices on them so you just donated what you thought you needed to. I also found 15 of these uncut patterns of these beautiful young girl dresses. You also get a doll dress pattern that looks just like the dress you do for your little girl. I will probably sell these because my kids are teens. I also found this large cute white chick vase. It looks like Easter to me and vintage. My husband loves Donald Duck as I mentioned before and ducks. He really liked this vase so its staying here. I donated twenty dollars for all of this and I really thought considering the yards of fabric I got a great deal. The ladies conducting the sale was very happy but I wished I could of given more. The young mans last name I remember was King so if you could please pray for this young man he is about 25 years old. My daughter and I went to the fabric store last weekend and I spent about fifty dollars on way less fabric than this and it was on sale! I will do a full post with pics on some of the neat items I found this past weekend. I did find another fabric basket and it looks like a Easter basket, soo cute! I just put some Yankee Candle melts in it for now. See in the photo, it matches my cute basket I found a few weeks ago. My daughter and I will be doing some sewing soon so pray that I can remember how to work my machine! LOL God bless!
