Having seen yo-yo after yo-yo on the net I finally decided to make some.  Very quick and easy I must add and can be used for so many crafty things.

I put my first three onto a teeshirt with some ric rac to make them look like flowers.  I made two such teeshirts and sold both very early in the day at our little village craft fayre.  Success I thought until the boats flew out the gazebo and I now have only a couple left. 

So this week I am making yo-yos by the 3s and sewing boats on teeshirts with enthusiasm and speed.  I do enjoy this time of year and love it when people like my work. 

I am going to try stitching yo-yos onto card to look like flowers.  Hopefully this will work.  Will keep you posted.

Have still to try a triple decker ice cream applique.  Yum yum.


  1. I love those little flowers! I have a whole bag full of yo-yo's I made back in college...10+ years ago. I havne't made them into the quilt I intended them for, but now I think I may have found a new use for them.

    Thanks for linking to Transform Tuesday. I'm excited to see what your next project is.
