I've been wanting to make a small shelf runner for so long now I don't remember when I first had the idea. I made a start a week ago and finished it on the weekend. It's my kind of project, firstly it required minimal thinking, it’s the weekend who wants to think! Secondly it was a chance to play with some of my favourite fabric scraps and thirdly make yo-yos with my trusty Clover Yo-yo maker. I admit a moment of worry when I couldn’t locate it and thought my plans would have to be abandoned, but it was just where you’d expect to find it, in a tin with yo-yos. Locating the right tin was the problem.
And here it is finished.
It's so nice to have finally got around to making it.
If you're thinking my yo-yos look perfect it's because I use a Clover yo-yo maker.
Without it they'd be all different sizes!
This was not the only project I ticked off. The Gift Tags are finished.
I must confess when I wrote about them in my last post I half expected they'd still be a work in progress come Christmas Eve. I'm so pleased and yes relieved they're ticked off and it's not even December.
It felt a little weird stitching one for myself but thought, why should I miss out?
The pattern for the tag shown below has been released as a PDF pattern.
This means you won't have to wait for the post and can start stitching it this weekend.
