    cut a circle (say 2" circle) stitch a running basting stitch 1/4" around the circle. pull the threads holding your finger (or a washer/plastic circle...)inside. pull the threads to gather so your raw edges gather in the center. tie off.
    they can be used gather up, or gather down, with a button in the center, just the gather, sky's the limit...
    have fun

    Where and how do you use your yo yo"s? I made a boo boo on my 2yr old grandchilds quilt on the lower right back corner so when I add my label I thought I would add a yo yo or two to help cover up my boo boo.

    Good thinker! I'm sure you could get them at Joann's and probably with a coupon (if it's not on sale). It's under $10 and worth every penny for me.

    I haven't used my collection yet. I have about a shoebox worth. I make them to keep my hands busy when watching tv, when I want to sit at lunch at work and play or when sitting in doctor offices or hospitals. It really does help.

    I keep the kit of 5" charms, the tool, scissors, hand thread, and needles in a medium size makeup bag. I usually leave the kit in my car.

    I've seen them tacked together on the edges and used like a doily. That may be my first project with them.

    If you just want to make a few ---- take an old CD or DVD and trace around it for a perfect circle. If you use starch --- go lightly with it so the yo-yo will gather easily.
