Yo Yo Making

I've been busy making yo yos!

These yo yos...

...not the toy on a string.

I've been asked by a few folks what are yo yos.  It is what I call an "old lady craft" just because its been around forever.  It is a simple way to embellish items with very little material.  You don't see them much, but I love 'em.  They are easy to make especially if you have the help of a yo yo maker.

Here a few of the kitchen towels I've been telling you about.  I think they turned out kind of cute.  These will be going into the church craft sale. I bought the towels on clearance for $2 and the other materials I had in my stash. Wonder how we should price these -  what do you think?  

I've got a few more to finish up along with several other things I've got in the works.   The craft sale is in less than a month.  I usually wait til the last minute to work on stuff like this.  So I'm kind of proud of myself for getting a little bit of a head start. 


  1. The towels look great. I just want to know? Who are you and what have you done with Cathy?
    Also were you drinking when you took that first picture? As fast as you work you should have all your crafts finished in a week.

  2. Those are cool! I remember learning to make yo yo's when I was a kid. We made them into little clowns....

    I think your towels are going to sell out at the craft fair!

  3. huh, i had no idea you meant this kind of yo yo. see, i learned something today!

  4. I am proud of you also you never start anything early. You go girl.
