    Okay,

    I got a yo-yo maker - and I was way excited. Until I made a couple of yo-yos! They're only about an inch big!!!

    What can I possibily do with these tiny, itty-bitty, little yo-yos?

    Any Ideas are appreciated!

    =)

    If you can just keep on yo-yoing, it can be a whole quilt top. Remember the hexagons in Grandmother's Flower Garden are often only 1 inch. I must say I admire the patience of those who make them.

    Dresser scarves - that's what I'm in the process of doing. I've also seen vests made with them... I little girl's purse maybe - simple construction and then over lay with yo=yo's

    I've seen some yo yo dolls before and they are cute... I think simplicity has patterns for them also

    Here is a king size spread that my MIL made with them. She didn't have a maker. Would sit and make them while watching TV at night.

    Then I placed some good quality white in the floor frame, and her friends in the neighborhood came and helped sew them on. She has passed away now, and it is very special to me and DH

    I've seen necklaces made with tiny ones. Or you could use them as accents on a purse. Pins (jewelry)? Quilt quild name tags?

    The last time I was in my local JoAnn's they had a free pattern for a yo-to wine bottle holder. Or maybe placemats!

    I'd use them on the surface as little flowers. You can embellish all your clothing. Oh, the lure of those yo-yo makers is irresistible, isn't it? I've got several and I've never made a single yo.
