Jazzing up Grandma’s Old Hand Bag

Adding simple details to an almost perfectly adorable hand bag is so easy and can
make a big difference!

I found this adorable wood and cloth hand bag at my local thrift store for only $2! I had to make it mine! It was cute but it needed a punch of color!

Solution: YO YO”S!!!!

Yo Yo’s start off as Pieces of Fabric Cut into Circles.

Heather Bailey has the best Yo yo Tutorial so check it out HERE! Trust me…it’s as simple as it comes! You’ll be as addicted as I am in no time!

Teh last thing you’ll need to add to your Yo Yo is a button!

And now you can either sew them on, glue them on or add a broach pin the backs of your Yo Yo’s and attach them to what ever you’d like to adorn! In this case they add just what I was looking for… a fun pop of color!
