I wanted to show my Southern Sewin' Sistahs that their friendships are special to me, so I made up these little goody bags with some homemade pattern weights. I used the tutorial found here, but changed it up a little. I found some flat washers at the local hardware store that were just a little larger. I glued two of them together for the added weight and then glued them to a circle of batting of the same size. These fit perfectly inside the yo-yo.
I made five pattern weights for each Sistah using some of my scraps in varying colors. This is a great project while watching a movie! I found quotes on friendship, printed them all up pretty-like on card stock and added them to the bags with bakers twine.
I hope they get some good use of them and know how special they are loved! Pin It
