>Part 6: Advent Calender Button YOYO Ornamnet

>

hung on tree

Supplies:

  • button (I used vintage buttons)
  • small yoyo (use what ever you want for the template)
  • needle
  • embroidery thread to sew and use as hanger
  • scissors
  • sewing thread

Order of events:

  1. Make yoyo.
  2. Tie knot in embroidery thread; pass through center of yoyo and back again.
  3. Thread button and stitch on; go through yoyo and button two or three times. Finish with needle on back of work.
  4. Insert needle into yoyo; come out edge of yoyo.
  5. Make loop for hanger; tie off.
  6. Take needle back into yoyo and cut off.
finished

Because I don’t like to post on Sunday, I will post another ornament late tonight for everyone.
DO NOT USE ANY OF THESE PATTERNS TO MAKE THINGS TO SELL FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY!!!!
