I went back and forth wanting to make these... are they dorky-retro or are they fun/funky-retro? I decided that they were fun/ funky and dove right in. I had a Swell by Urban Chiks charm pack, a very full Tivo, two sleeping children and a quiet afternoon ahead of me. Add a needle, corner seat of a couch and you have the recipe for yo-yo madness. I am going to use some of them for cards and the rest for hair clippies. I sent my daughter off to preschool in one last week and she sent it home with somebody else. Good thing I have backups!
