True Blue

a while ago I bought this light blue t-shirt. I just grabbed it because it was my color, had a few cute details and said size small. When I got it home I realized it was huge so I thought I would just be wearing it for bed. I liked it and it was super soft but after going through the wash it came out much smaller, very close to the right size in fact. But there was a new problem- I found a few stains on it. I was sad because now it fit nicely but was ruined...
And then I thought of something to cover up the stains. So I called my mom and asked if she still had any of the yo-yo doilies my grandmother had made. She had made a huge "quilt" and pillow shams from yo-yos that I always remember seeing around the house that I can't think of using any other way but there had always been smaller pieces that I was wondering about.
So mom sent them and dad gave his permission for them to be used and the other day I came up with this solution:

yo-yo's

And of course, I love it! Yay!
