I love yo-yo's! They are a traditional craft usually associated with quilting. Yo-yo's are versatile, easy to make and they are a great take-it-with-you project. Honestly, I don't know exactly what I will be making with my yo-yo's yet, but I am leaning towards sewing them together for a little decorative cover for the coffee table. Stitchy has put together a wonderful yo-yo tutorial here.
Here are some things you make with yo-yo's:
A lovely bed cover (scroll down to the 2nd picture)
An adorable framed picture
Or this cute little goodie!
I found this idea in a Mary Engelbreit book:
This would be very simple to make by sewing yo-yo's on the edge of a pillowcase and a flat sheet.
