Yo Yos!


Look!  I made some yo yos!  I'm so proud of myself!  Just threading a needle is an amazing feat in itself for me!  Ha!

I had started my embroidery hoop project but then I totally sprained my back so I thought it was as good a time as any to learn how to make yo yos! I could seriously make these all day long if my wimpy wrists would let me!
 I used the yo yo maker that Creative Breathing Elizabeth gave me a long time ago!  If you read this, Elizabeth- thank you!

Love your fabric selection for your yo-yos. Fingers crossed that your latest back injury is a short-lived one.

Yea for you!!! Now, I can't wait to see what you make out of them. That is one thing I have never tried, but it looks like fun!

Cute YoYos! I started to make them when I was in my last cast. That little yoyo maker makes it so much easier!
Have fun Holly!

Holly, Your house is getting cuter by the minute! These yo yos match your garland. You with your sprained back, and me with a sprained knee since Jan. 2nd! All I've been able to do is craft. I'm going crafting crazy! Three more weeks for me, I hope your sprain heals quickly! E

Yo Yo maker??? Here I've been making them by hand for 40 years!!! My stupid hands are giving me fits, but I'm still trying to create, too.

Hugs,

Last week I was watching a sewing show on t.v. and they were teaching two methods for making yo yos. I love the fabric you chose for yours.
