My adorable friend Brittney and I have a common love of DIY projects and she shared the idea for fabric flowers called yoyos with me. Last night I looked up a really great YouTube video, poured some wine, put season 3 of 30 Rock on Netflix and got to work on my very first sewing project ever using some fabric samples from Esther:

I can't sew a straight line to save my life, especially after a couple glasses of wine, but with these you don't need to so they are perfect! I'm going to put them on tshirts, cardigans, shoes, pillows, all sorts of things.


  1. Hope you had a thimble while you were making those things. :)

  2. they look GREAT! way better than mine, and I used a yo yo maker which makes it totally easy for you haha. why cant we live closer so we could do this stuff together :(

  3. I didn't have a thimble and I stabbed myself pretty badly a few times!

    Brittney, when I was making them I was thinking the same thing!
