>halloween Yoyos and new tools

>My friend buttercup who lives in Japan sent me these new yoyo tools. My kids just love these tools they really help little kids who do not have the coordination to do it on their own yet. I still like the old way but it is useful to have these for my kids. I do have to admit the flowers are easier to make on the tool than by hand. It was so much fun getting this in the mail and looking at all the Japanese newspapers that it was wrapped in.

gift from buttercup except blue I bought

I put a sample of a yoyo with coins for a reference for those of you who want to know how big the yoyos are with the big jumbo yoyo maker.

All these yoyos are for the Halloween yoyo quilt I started last year. I have been making these while commuting lately. Don’t think I have given up on the lace yet as I am still doing it too finished seven yards of the yellow now on to a few more laces will post latter.

yoyos made by me using standard cd as template

I think I will add the yoyos my daughter made (pictured below) to the edge when I am done to give it a sort of scalloped feel. She has 39 made and enough fabric to make 80 total.

    >I have always loved yo-yos! I haven’t tried making a quilt with them though…yet. Using an old cd sounds like a great idea. That way, you don’t have alot of little ones to sew together 🙂

    >I’m making a yoyo quilt. I’ve heard about these tools, but never actually seen them before. I love the jumbo ones. I use a cd for a template for my quilt yoyos.
