Blimey, it's hard to photograph velvet!

Hello Gals!
Well this week I have still been yo-yo'ing, it's a great little stash buster!

My favourite one so far is the velvet. Now usually I wouldn't use velvet in a sewing project, as it's a bit difficult to work with, but for hand sewing it's been great!It's so difficult to photograph though! I took this one on my knee!
It feels beautiful so soft and it's a beautiful deep red( not my knee ,the brooch) I shall definitely be wearing one on my grey winter coat too!I have made some for Christmas stocking fillers too!

This one is made from a linen mix.
In fact I have been so addicted to making yo-yos I have some brooches going into my little shop later today!

Hope the sun is out for you, it is here, although it's very cold, fresh shall we say!
I shall be having a Christmas giveaway on Friday too!

Both yo yo's you posted are lovely! The velvet one will look beautiful on your gray coat. Is there someone that might have given a tutorial on how to make them? I'd love to learn and I have a slew of buttons!!

We have sun today, thankfully, but that could change in an hour!
