Pat has shown us a wonderful idea with yoyos i would have never of thought of this..Pat is so talented...
Found some colorful pot holders at the $1 store....
2 for $1...Had to dress them up with some yoyos..
here is what I did...crocheted a edge around the outside in orange...started off with a blanket stitch..a row row 3DC in sc of previous 3DC 1 sc all around.
blind stitiched yoyos in the shape of a flower onto both pot holders.....they are so colorfull........and in the fall spirit.....
will spray them with scotchguard frabic spray to protect them a bit from getting dirty fast when used....
thought you would like to see what I have been up to..
Keep on Yoyo ing......
Pat from NY

Thank You Pat Great Ideas.. Everyone seems busy with the upcoming holidays..
