Handmade Ornaments - Day 1

Peppermint Yo-Yo
From Polka dot Pineapple

I found this on Pinterest, where I found all the ideas for this 30 day project.

Here is a link to my board with all the ideas I chose http://pinterest.com/craftallthings/30-days-of-handmade-ornaments/

I bought plain quilting cotton to make mine out of.  The selection at Hancock Fabrics near me is so BLAH, unless I want to use fleece, then I have 15 million choices.

Here is a picture of my first cut out pieces

Here they all are ready for sewing

I failed to take in progress sewing pictures, so here is the final ornament on my little display tree:

And a close up

I decided against the holly leaves, but as soon as I find the jingle bells I have, I will sew it on in the middle of the bow.
