    Has anyone ever tried using their machine's basting stitch to make yo yo's? I've thought about trying this but didn't know if it'd be worth the time.

    Seems like it would work, as long as the stitch is long enough to draw up easily.

    I think it would work fine as long as you can sew circles well. Tiny ones would be hard for me, but I sew 4 inch cirlces for Dresden plates. Seems like you could do it.

    I really like those Clover yo-yo makers. They come out so perfectly!
