Yo Yo's

Yes, yo-yo's, that's what I have been making lately, and I am  in love with them!
So many uses and ideas!
I can see them in pillow, headbands, hair clips, sashes, brooches, shoes, you name it!
The plus: sooo  easy to make them ! I have been using mainly silk and satin, but cotton also loves them!
Just cut circles the sizes you want (remember, for a statement size yo-yo you need a fairly large circle, I use plates), hand stitch loosely and pull the thread!
I use cups, lids of all sizes and dinner/salad plates.

Now I will embellish the centre with beads, tulle, feather,  buttons and they are good to go.
 Coming soon what I came up with!
