Is it just me or does everyone else get the munchies while watching the Biggest Loser? For some reason every week my craving for ice cream gets so strong that I find myself succumbing to temptation before I realize what I am doing.
This week I planned ahead.
Keep the hands busy and maybe…just maybe my mind would forget about my mouth.
I am proud to say it worked.
I had no idea what I was going to do…it needed to be mindless…with what I had…because of course I didn’t come up with this plan until 5 minutes before the show was about to begin.
Then I remembered yo-yo’s…my mother use to make them.
Here are some pillows that she made my daughter years ago using yo-yo’s…
I went to the fabric stash…
Have I told you I can’t throw fabric scraps away?
After I picked the fabric I went to the kitchen to find something round to make my circles.
My Tupperware hamburger thingys fit perfect on the scrap so I made as many circles as possible…six.
Yo-yo’s are simple to make…you just fold over about a quarter of an inch and sew a running stitch around the whole circle.
As you are stitching, you just slowly gather up the circle.
It was the perfect project…even though I have no idea what I’m going to do with them yet…
I could put them on a basket…
Or maybe just put one on a picture frame
Or I could take a drab lampshade and give it some pizazz.
Wow…my head is spinning from all the possibilities…
Have you ever put a yo-yo on anything?
