    Just picked up two sizes of the yo yo makers.
    Wow.. it is so much easier, and they turn out perfect.
    Wish I had found these a long time ago.

    They are great! I have trouble that my hands go numb when I do any fine motor skill task such as sewing a yo-yo. But because I don't have to grip the fabric and the needle with these gadgets, I am able to whip yo-yos without much trouble.

    I love these gadgets. A couple of hints: use quilting thread and you wont have to worry about breaking thread; i was having trouble remembering where to stop going around so I put a black mark (Sharpie) on one of the bumps and that is where I start and stop. I really like starting with squares instead of circles. When I stop pulling the yo yo into its shape, I go down with the needle and thread through the middle to the bottom, take a couple of little stitches then make a knot. I always use the yo yo with the bottom down so it doesnt make a difference to me that there are a couple of stitches there.

    As part of my anniversary present from hubby which was a trip to Joann's...I got all the little yo yo makers they had except for the oval one. I couldn't see any reason that I would use that one. But I got the heart ones and the butterfly ones along with the regular yo yo makers. I can't wait to play with them on a project.

    I have a large and extra large. I've made some, but haven't used any. What do you guys use them for?

    They look nice as the center of flowers. And then there are coverlets you can make with them. You can even use them as flowers.
