And the Winner Is!

Things are going crazy here as we rush around trying to leave town for the Thanksgiving holiday.  I'm really looking forward to seeing all my family, although the 8.5 hour drive isn't too fun.  Hopefully I'll have enough light to crochet for a while, and thankfully Mike prefers to drive.

I thought I'd pop in quickly to share these easy yo-yo ribbons I made for a recent event Mike and I were running.  We don't usually have prizes but it was a special month so I made up these two ribbons (sorry the pictures are crummy, I was having a disagreement with my camera).  The winners were almost certainly going to be non-crafty men, so I tried to use not-too-girly fabrics, hard with my stash dominated by brights.  I think the two winners liked them!

These are really easy to make if you need prizes or awards, The large center is just a big yo-yo and with the felt circle sewn over the middle and the label part fused with fusible.  They make fun custom prizes!

I hope you all had a happy and grateful Thanksgiving!  Thanks for stopping in and visiting my corner of the web!
