I fell in love with this http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=322706.0 and then I found this http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=323223.0 and I knew I had to give it a try with the scraps of fabrics I had lying around....





it's a little chunkier than the other two, and I can wear a bit lower (there's more chain behind) but overall it's both fun and quite dramatic... I like it.
It's not something you see on the street every day, but I'm really liking the idea right now!

C&C welcome!

Thank you all so much! I'm going to wear this tomorrow and I'm curious to hear the comments from the non-crafty world!
I had fun making this and it was a great way to use some little scraps that were too small for anything... now, if only I had discovered these things in the summer.... I would have probably gone mad making tons of them! I don't know how this can work with winter fabrics... but I might try to find out!!

I gotta say - I've never been a big fan of yo yo's before but I think you might have changed my mind. It looks awesome! And very classy with the monochromatic effect.

I'm so glad you loved my red one, and even more glad you were gutsy enough to tackle your own one, and even MORE glad you took it a step further and made it original by adding beads!

Beautiful! Absolutely Beautiful!
