Yo-Yo! Show & Tell!

Hi Lovelies,

Show & Tell Thursday's

How's your January been?  Getting into a crafty groove?

Last year whilst perusing and researching Miriam and her Pinterest boards, I decided to try one of the things found on there, for the advent swap.

A yo-yo covered cushion cover.

I'd never made any before and I am in love!  So quick and easy and cute!!

There was a bit of planning - arrangements, buttons, etc.

And I am really happy with the way it turned out  : )

Today is the last day to link up and be in to win a fat quarter of your choice from this gorgeous range and metre of pom-pom braid from lovely Lisa at Lydia's Treasures.

  6. LOVE it!!

    Definitely pinning it! i've decided we need some cushions on our black leather couches. For comfort. And style. I'm thinking of using these sorts of colours - a creamy / light cushion base and each cushion have some sort of bright unique detail on it!

    I've linked in, and just realised I haven't been linking back in my posts -SO SORRY!! Hope you haven't noticed and thought I was being a blog snob! I'm just forgetful / lazy, honest :)
