Yoyo's....

OK I have a confession.....
so maybe I'm a tad behind the masses....maybe I'm a bit uncool in the crafting world.....I even had to phone my Mum and ask what those "cute little round fabric things that gather in the middle" are called, so I could find a tutorial on how to make them.....I've never made Yoyo's before.
These are my first one's. I think I'm in love....but knowing me it's probably just an infatuation....I'll get over it.
Their simplicity leads me down the path of embarrassment. But their foolproof construction, prettiness and vintage appeal promptly surmounts any chagrin at having overlooked these small sweet wheels of fabric for so long and delivers me a steadfast grin instead.

I too recently figured out how to make Yo-yos. Yours are so pretty, fun and summery! Love it.

You're not alone I havn't made them yet. They are on my "to do" list at about no. 5. Problem is other projects keep getting bumped up the list.

Your yoyos are wonderful...like craft candy :)
I think they make lovley embellishments on little girls dresses and skirts. What will you do with yours?
