    Yes, Clover makes all sizes of round's. They also have flowers, & hearts. I made a runner & am currently working on a T-cloth. These are easy & all directions included. I prefer the size LG. for the above projects. These can be purchsed at quilt shops & shows as well as at craft stores. (including Jo Ann's, & Michaels.) It is a good project while watching TV or visiting, (I call them a no brainer project, as do not have to think about it if tired) Opps, you reminded me that I have never taken a picture of the runner.

    Go for the clover yo yo maker. On the front of each package there is an actual size of a finished one. If you have a Joanns near you, they are all 1/2 price starting tomorrow. They are classified as a quilting notion. I have all sizes but rarely use the small or extra small. I like this method because you start out with a square instead of a circle.

    these are two quilts I posted with yo-yo's, one entirely and the 2nd as an accent

    You will love how quickly they multiply and are very easy as a to-go project.

    I just use the bottom of a large glass as my template. Currently I'm finishing up a yo yo bedspread, it's taken me over 6 months now. LOL Like the other said, they are great on the go projects.

    Yes, yo-yos are easy. Fun to do when you want something carefree and very portable. I always did them freehand, but just yesterday at Joann's I used the 40% off coupon and bought the Clover x-large yo-yo maker. We have season tickets to our local county baseball team and I make yo-yos at the games.

    I used to use Yo-Yo making as a punishment, until the kids started to enjoy making them!! Now they have little Yo-Yo making parties with their girlfriends on the street.
