WIP Friday: Yo-yos!

September 8, 2006 at 10:26 am | Posted in Sewing/Crafts, swaps | 10 Comments

Not the Smothers Brothers, shoot-the-moon kind, but fabric yo-yos. I’m in a swap this month, so here are the first of many yo-yos to be made.

WIP yo-yos

This is also a show and tell for my sister, who didn’t know what a yo-yo was, so I’m killing two birds with one stone.* Hi, Jenny!

There are great instructions over on Heather’s site. And there’s another yo-yo swap on swap-bot in case you missed this one and are interested in joining. They’re a great way to plow through your scraps.

*Or, as Mom says, “Killing two birds with one stick.” This close, Ma.

  1. I love those fabrics! I’ve not tried yo-yos yet. I may have to now!

  2. Whack, whack, take that birds!

  3. Cutie! I like the fabrics? Now what do you do with these again?

  4. lol Jenna. I have to cut her some slack, as English isn’t her first language, but it’s just so funny. Especially with her Filipino accent, which sounds a little like Grover from Sesame St. She even says “Halo, everyboadee!”

    I kid because I love.

  5. Jenny:

    Oh, heck, I don’t know yet. Heh. Guess I forgot that I’d be on the receiving end, too, so I’d better figure something out!

    If you get enough, you can make a quilt type thing. If you make graduated sizes, you can make a Christmas tree. Um. If you get or make a bunch, you can make garlands. Any other bright ideas out there? Oh, yeah, you can make flowers, or applique them onto things for decoration. Uh…I’m out of ideas.

  8. Those fabrics are so cute. For an idea, I once saw a yo-yo appliqued pillow and it looked pretty cute.

  9. You know… I’ve been saying “Kill two birds with one stone” a lot lately, and it’s really starting to creep me out – I don’t want to kill birds!

  10. I have just become a yoyo addict! I LOVE it all!
