Yo-yo flowers

I made this  flower necklace for my daughter's birthday. It was  a quick way to make a flower. 
I started with five cream fabric yo-yo pinwheels.  To make the fabric yo-yo's cut out some fabric circles, use the gathering stitch around the edges and then flatten the circle with the stitching in the center.
After making the yo-yo's position them on a piece of felt and then hot glue them into place.
Then add another yo-yo to the center. I used a smaller one on the top. I cut out some leather leaves and stitched around the edges.  To finish the center I used 3 brown beads and added them onto the top of the smaller yo-yo.

I added a pin attachment to the back of the flower and cut the felt on the back. I then pinned it to the side of a double set of beads. I figured if she didn't want to wear it as a necklace she could wear it as a pin or add the pin to the outside of a bag or whatever she wanted to pin it on!

It looks way cute on her and I hope she liked it.

My daughter love to bake and to celebrate all of the birthdays we have this next month she had a cupcake war. (with herself!) She made all of these delicious cupcakes for the birthdays and celebrating  Father's day.
 We had chocolate black berry creams. banana with cinnamon cream cheese icing, strawberry with lemon cream icing,  and carrot zucchini with cream cheese and almonds. Yes, they were all Delicious!

My favorite was the strawberry with lemon cream icing.

There were so yummy!
Hope you had a great weekend!

I've been seeing a lot done with yo yos, but this is definitely the most glamorous! Just the thing to wear while eating gourmet cupcakes...
