happy st patrick's day!

in honor of st patrick's day: a green craft (though this could really be any color). these bobby pins are decorated with fabric yoyos, made from vintage silk ties. carefully open up tie with a seam ripper and iron flat. for each yoyo, cut a circle that is about twice a large as you want the final yoyo to be. fold over the edges slightly and do a running stitch all around the edge (make sure there is a thick knot at the beginning). cinch the stitched thread (and fabric) and flatten the yoyo in place. attach to the bobby pin with a dab of hot glue. for the best results, use bobby pins with a gluing pad.
