Lovely tutorial on making yo-yos for crafting. Great evening TV-watching scrap fabric project. Yo-yos are so versatile and can adorn just about anything for a bit of charm. From corsage floral pins, to flower-like headbands, light and airy bed throws, pillow adornments or even stacked for whimsical Christmas trees, the simple yo-yo adds texture and fun to many sewing projects.
