Can't Stop Yo-Yoing....



I bought one of those handy Clover Yo-Yo makers and shoot....I'm addicted. I don't have any purpose for them but I don't really care. They're just easy and fun. The thrill you get when you pull them tight is almost as satisfying as when you peel an egg and the entire shell comes off in one piece. You know the feeling I'm talking about?
So I sit in front of the tv at night just making yo-yos for no other reason than they're a fun way to use some of my scraps. I did use some leftover fabric from my Taxi Tote to make MiniMe some barrettes.




And MiniB at least seems to love to pile my yo-yos in the back of his dump truck and drive them around. Are you a Yo-yo addict? Tell me what I must do to stop. I make mini yo-yos, large ones, and I'm about ready to go buy the extra large maker! Must. Stop. The. Madness.

Edited after posting: You can purchase the Clover Yo-Yo makers in the quilting section of any craft store. They are plastic discs that range in size so that you can make many different sizes of yo-yos. The price of the makers is about $6. Since I'm getting questions, I'll post a picture of them soon!

Pin It!

I wanna make some too, so i'll have to venture out and find the maker:) they would make great gift toppers on wrapping paper instead of a bow...and I love the barrets your made, you could even add those to your etsy and sell them!!! Have a great day!
