More yarn.

Ugh! Now my camera battery needs to be charged so I will have to try to take pictures later. I am not having a good day! The picture below is the only picture Demi didn't delete. I made the red one. Demi was able to do them sitting on my lap. She can't remember what way to wrap them so I had to point showing her how to move the yarn. I had to give hers a few tugs to pull the yarn snug a few times. Travis had a lot of fun making them. He didn't need any help. He said he liked making them so much he is going to make 100 of them. I wonder what he will do with 100 of them? I had to look up online how to make them because I couldn't remember how to wrap them so they turned out right. I had wood showing the first 3 tries. It feels like just yesterday I learned to make them but I guess it was about 25 years ago.


I don't know if I will have a chance to post any more of our yarn crafts today. I am happy to say it looks like my computer is working again but it has been a long day!

Hi Amber,

God's Eyes!!! That's what we used to call them. I had vaguely thought about these for our string project, but I couldn't remember how to make them (it was probably more than 25 years ago for me!) and didn't have any popsicle sticks anyway.

This is a wonderful project and I am so glad you joined us! Welcome!

That would be lovely if you would post some other string project ideas this week (if you want to). I'll come back and check later in the week.

I hope we'll see you again in two weeks for "Collage!" Nice to "meet" you!

oh Amber when you get time, you have to show me how to do it. Very neat. I might need to get more yarn, I just have blue yarn LOL

We have some hanging on our tree from my cousin's children over the years.
Very pretty.

Sorry I am so far behind in replying to my comments. I was so busy with the holidays I fell way behind with everything! I forgot the name was called God's eyes! Thanks unplugged mom! I think I searched for yarn crosses to find how to make them. I did find out how but now I feel silly I didn't remember the name.
Yasmina, http://crafts.kaboose.com/gods-eyes.html has directions.
Travis is sitting next to me and he likes the ones on this site. http://www.allfreecrafts.com/nature/ojo-de-dios.shtml
I think we will be making them with a pattern like this and adding feathers later today to keep him happy and busy. I think they are a form of Indian dream catchers.
