    ok, I want in on this yo-yo conversation! I love the little yo-yo animals like the doggie. So annyone got any pics to show I may just have to purchase this clever yo yo maker, if they aren't too much anyway!

    I didn't realize all that you could do with the yoyo's. Guess its a good thing I'm getting hooked on them. I especially want to make a quilt like the one I saw on here the other day. That is what inspired me to get one and try it out because doing it with out the Clover Maker was too much work for me.

    I definately recommend the Clover Maker. Now to just find some patterns of things to do with them.

    I'd be interested to seeing some pictures if anyone has some.

    Laughing out loud as I just got home from JoAnn's with 3 Clover Yo-Yo makers! I ran over to the store 10 minutes before closing time as they were the only things I needed. I had 3 coupons a 50% and 2 40% off. Total $12.81 inc. tax! Jumbo size $8.99 makes a finished 3 1/2 inch Yo-Yo, extra large $6.49 make a finished 2 3/8 inch Yo-Yo and a large $5.99 makes a 1.8 inch finished Yo-Yo. And am I making Yo-Yos - NO I'm reading the board again! LOL! Everyone look at user Patti's listing "whew...I think I'm finished". Spectacular coverlet and decorative pillow!

    Oh, I think Patti's quilt used yoyo's that were 3" so now I know they make one 3 1/2 " I just might have to make a trip over there to pick one up and I thnk I just received more coupons in the mail today.

    And I did yard work this evening so I've only made two yoyo's but I can tell you more is coming. I even called my mom to tell her I had a new craft for her to try. She lives in a motorhome year round so this would be perfect to do in there. You don't need a lot of place to work or store the stuff and it's fairly inexpensive.

    I think we are all enablers. LOL

    I've had my Clover yoyo maker for a while and absolutely love it and highly recommend it for it's ease.

    As I've said before, I put everything into a makeup bag with a zipper and it's in my car ready to go. If I want to make some in the house, I just go and get it out of the car.

    Here's the link to Patti's spectacular room with a yoyo coverlet.

    I loved the look of yo-yo quilts, but, have not tried it yet. I would like to and I am sure that I would purchase one of these yo-yo makers before I even get started

    I love the yo-yo maker - I make yo-yo's every once in awhile - I'm trying (not much effort) to collect enough for a twin bed quilt

    I got a yo yo maker and was wondering if you could help me with something. Everything goes along fine until I go to pull in the threads, how do you get the seam (i.e. raw edges turned inward) I can't for the life of me get my head round it. Thaank you bryanne
