i can hardly tie a knot in thread.
and i have a hard time threading a needle unless the eye is super big.
here’s what you’ll need:
(i love the five headbands for $5 at h+m kids –
which i too can wear – but you can use any kind.)
needle and thread
first, trace two sizes of circles on the back side of fabric with a pencil.
(the big yo-yos i made are about 3 & 3/4″ diameter.
yet another reason to get these bottles.)
i used a small bowl from the kitchen for the smaller yo-yos.
cut the circles out.
then get back to work.
next, tie a knot (the hardest part for me)
and sew the thread through, really close together.
(do you like my sewing terms?)
pull the thread as taut as possible and then tie a knot,
cut the thread and voila!
and here K and i are with our matching headbands.
oh, how i love to be matchy-matchy with my daughter.
this month, i’ll be posting the Scripture
leading up to Christmas that i listed here.
At that time Mary got ready and hurried to a town in the hill country of Judea,
where she entered Zechariah’s home and greeted Elizabeth.
When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting,
the baby leaped in her womb,
and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.
In a loud voice she exclaimed:
“Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear!
But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears,
the baby in my womb leaped for joy.
Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!”
round three has now begun.
