Today I was thinking about a blog topic for day 4 of Blogtoberfest and I also was thinking that it is almost the Christmas season. I searched my projects and found this old work in progress (WIP).
I love the look of yo-yo's. While working with the hexies, I was thinking about how much I like to work on making yo-yos when I need a mobile project. Hopefully, I will enjoy making hexies too someday.
This fabric has been in my stash for quite some time. It is white cotton with silver sparkle stars and 2000. I remember seeing this fabric many places in 1999 right before the year 2000. I bought 2 yards and thought I would make a Year 2000 quilt but never could come up with a design. As years passed, I couldn't think of a project to make using it and it didn't seem right to donate it. (I mean, I couldn't understand someone wanting Year 2000 fabric.)
I had an idea to use this fabric for yo-yos, since no one would notice the Y2K material. I think the yo-yos look cute with the sparkly material. I plan to use the yo-yos to make a garland for Christmas decorations.
