    Yoyo's are fun to make. Just thought I would try this - I saw a pic of it allpeoplequilt.com - I tried to arrange them sort of like the pic showed but kept changing it and then I just decided to heck with it all and just started hot glueing them on - I embelished the centers - made it sort of cute - and it was fun for a change of pace.

    What a fun idea! I just started making the yo yo's and they are easy, fast and a simple thing you can do WHILE watching t.v... I now have a bundle of them and was thinking of making an applique wall hanging with a vase and the yo yo's as the flowers. I think you created a happy colorful piece of art. Thanks for sharing.

    That would be very pretty as well - Yes, they are a lot of fun to make and they make up sooo fast - I also do mine when I watch some tv. I'm thinking of making a yoyo coverlet but believe I will attach them to a white sheet.
