Yo-Yo Quilt Projects
Learn two great ways to make yo-yos for this sweet little accent pillow.
Petal Pincushion Stacks
These quick-to-make pincushions with a yo-yo center are cute enough to give individually or as a towering set of three.
Yo-Yo Wall Art
Elevate yo-yos to a new level: Mount them on a painted artist's canvas and present the composition as a wall hanging. To show off the colorful prints, some of these yo-yos are right side up and the rest are upside down.
Yo-yos turn common foam eggs into holiday treasures. Gather a selection of spring fabrics, make yo-yos, and secure them to eggs with buttons and bead-topped pins to create easy holiday decorations.
Keep your needles, scissors, and thread close at hand in an embroidered sewing roll made with fabrics that reflect your style and embellished with yo-yos.
For an on-the-go project, stitch a bevy of yo-yos and secure them to strips to create a head- turning quilt filled with playful pops of color.
Easy-to-make yo-yos add bursts of cheery color to this seasonal stocking.
Grouped en masse, yo-yos are stunningly simple items that add flair to any space. Wrap coordinating fabric strips around a foam wreath, then attach assorted yo-yos with hot glue or pins. Hang the wreath with a satin ribbon. Use seasonal colors for holiday decorations or choose beautiful neutrals for a wreath that will last all year long!
Trim a Tree
Decorate a foam cone with dozens of assorted green yo-yos to make this whimsical holiday tree.
Signs of Spring
A garden of appliqués welcomes spring on this fun wall hanging. Use the "appliquilt" method to combine quilting and appliqué in one step, then embellish the quilt with yo-yos, buttons, and embroidery.
