The answer to any guesses

So today I tell you what it is.
Yesterday you saw this

This is a yo-yo maker. It's the fast and easy way to make fabric yo-yos. You may even say that it's the cheater way. Either way, for me, it's an easier way to put together yo yo's. I did these with the intentions of making a garland. They are however still sitting in a pile on the table.

You can get these yo yo makers in different shapes too. Now the cute little heart yo you I would never be able to do without this nifty little gadget.

And the heart shaped yo-yo is really nifty!!! I can't wait to see what your finished craft will be!!!!

Hi Ann, well yet a gain I have been absent for a while , I really need to get back into blogging, the thing is I miss keeping up with everyone so I am now going to try and get on line at least three times a week to keep in touch with all my favourite blogs. These little yo yo's are great though I'm not sure I would know what to do with them so I can't wait to see your finished garland. great to catch up with your other posts too. xxx

Sandra said...

i had googled these and saw they use them for decorations on pillows and other things, she put buttons in the center on the short video i watched... i like the little hearts.

Um, those don't look like the yo-yos I remember, but it has been a while.

EM Illustrator said...

that's so cool, I would never have guessed.

Chatty Crone said...

I thought you meant a real yo-yo! Dah. That is how crafty I am.

Christine said...

Wouldn't have known at all! It is a very good gadget and your yoyos will be a sweet garland.

Donna said...

You've got me in the mood to get out my little circle tools and make some more yo-yos! I think you've got the makings of a great patriotic table runner there. Just a thought!

Duni said...

I thought so! Yours look so much better than mine :)

Grace said...

Oh I see how you could make stuff with those...

Donna said...

I don't yo-yo but I DO eat pie...Any kind of pie...except mincemeat...Hahaaaa

Sandee said...

They sure are pretty. I'd not even heard of them before, but then why would I since I'm not crafty.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

Helen said...

I must be hungry for pie because it looks like a pie (lol) until I scrolled down. I might have to get one of this cheater thing. Love those flowers.

BeadedTail said...

Those are cute but I'l still craving pie! I had some yo yo's made for me and I put a button in the center and made them into flowers. They turned out pretty darn cute if I say so myself!

Jille said...

I am a big fan of gadgets! This one looks pretty cool!

Lin said...

Oh, that's spiffy. I hate making anything that requires many of them to create something larger.

A Quiet Corner said...

LOL! Ann, don't laugh but I thought that first pic was FOOD! Very interesting doo-daa, I must say!...:)JP

Ginny said...

O.K. when you said yo yo maker, I thought od the real yo yos, the toys with the string that go up and down. I REALLY thought you were making one! I did not know this is what they call these. And I want one if you tell me how to do it!!! We have a Michael's here. Also there is a heart one, is it harder? How easy is it? Can you post a pic of the wreath? I have seen them but forget now and would like to make one if I can master this first. Have I given you a headache yet??

SweetMarie said...

I thought you meant toy yo yos! lol My son still likes yo yos. :) What do you do with these?? They are pretty!

Betsy Adams said...

Well --how 'bout that? It does make some cute little things.... Gotta love it, Ann.
Hugs,
Betsy

Dee said...

I would have never guessed it to be a yo yo maker...could be because I never heard of one :)

marie said...

I wouldn't have guessed a yo yo maker. Definitely can understand how it would be helpful though.

Can't wait to see the garland completed!

GratefulPrayerThankfulHeart said...

That sure is a nifty little gadget! Would you believe I made hundreds of those little yo-yo's way, way back in the early eighties using many fabrics from dresses I made for the girls and other sewing projects. I probably have about a quarter of a twin size quilt made. Do you think I will ever in this life finish this project :)

I will keep an eye out for a gadget like this and maybe even get motivated again!

Sharkbytes said...

Cute. I've seen them, but haven't ever made any.
