Hello...I've been busy of late but decided I was long overdue to get a post up.
And, I see Val has Yo-Yos on the Tuesday Archives this week, so I am joinging in.
I don't have an old post to revive, so I decided to quickly click a few photos of yo-yos and write a short summary.
I haven't done many yo-yos, but I did find that making them with the Clover tools really did help.
As you can see from the photo, I have quite a few sizes and shapes of yo-yo making tools. I actually had a bit of a race with a friend. She did them by hand the "old-fashioned" way and I used the tools. I don't think she let me win, I truly think they help speed things up.
Here are a few things I have made with yo-yos in the past few years.
I like the angels most of all.
The tree is stuffed.
The brooch has an old button on it and a jewelry pin sewn on the back.
The hair tie is sewn to the back of the star yo-yo.
Then the Valentine gift from my friend is very special.
She actually used the heart yo-yo maker for that.
For 12 days (2 days are done) they have a free pattern. You have to get it that day if you want it for free.
They are cute...penguins and Christmas trees.
This week is Thanksgiving and I am counting the things I am thankful for.
And I am thankful you stopped by.
