Living off pasta and love (or what I've done this Summer)
I made these 'yo-yos' following the instructions by Heather Bailey. It makes plain t-shirts a little more girly. These t-shirts were £2 for 3 from Asda!
This was hard work! Lots of hand stitching and a lot of patience, which was tested when I realised I'd sewed some blocks wrong. arrrrggh. Got there in the end though. It was made from a kit bought by my Auntie called 'Kath's Kubes', it's not separate blocks but a toy that twists so each side has different fabric that you match together. I'm not explaining it well and it's much better than it looks in the picture! She bought it from the Quilt Museum and Gallery in York, you can get one from the quilt museum shop.
**I'm linking up to the Summer sewing wrap up at Fairy Face Designs because this is what I made over the summer - please take a look at some of my recent work too :) **
