- printed paper bag (10 x 6.5 inches)
- fabric scraps
- 2 small buttons (one small and one medium)
- ribbons (2 ribbons each 7-8 inches in length)
- brooch backing (optional)
- double sided tape
Make a yo yo (using a clover yo yo maker - large) that measures approx 2 inches (45 mm) in diameter. Fold the ribbons in half and trim the ends. Hand stitch the ribbons to the back of the yo yo. Layer the buttons and stitch them to the centre of the yo yo. If desired stitch a brooch back to the back of the yo yo rosette.
Cut a fabric strip measuring 1 3/4 inch x 11 inches. Cut another strip measuring 1 x 11 inches. Centre the smaller strip in the middle of the wider strip with the right sides facing upwards. Sew a gathering thread along the centre, and then pull the thread to gather the strip until it measures 6.5 inches. Stitch it in place through the centre to the bottom part of the paper bag.
Seal the bag with double sided tape. Attach the yo yo rosette in place using the brooch backing or else use a piece of double sided tape.
