YOYO WEEK {DAY 2}

YAY! We're up and running again. Did anyone else about have a heart attack when blogger quit? No? Me neither.
anyway...
I saw these yoyo thumbtacks at the Pottery Barn and fell.in.love.
What great vintage vibes flow from these mini cutenesses. But, alas, I'm in no need of thumbtacks. Magnets it is...
So I started out by cutting 20 different circles with 20 different fabric scraps. The cut pieces came out to be about 3 and 3/4"

I did a big stitch this time, unlike DAY 1's smaller stitching.

They came out to be about the size of a thread roll top.

Then glue magnets on the back! (or thumbtacks :)

Then thoroughly enjoy your vintagey fridge, or locker, or in my case, for the photoshoot, a serving tray:
Cheap {virtually free} and SO easy.

Come Back Tomorrow for YOYO WEEK {Day 3}

Cute! I've done these before too and you can even put the magnet inside of the yoyo so that you don't see the magnet on the back - it's all enclosed inside the yoyo. :)
