Default Thought I would share this!

Rachl had mentioned a yoyo maker when I asked about the cute minnie mouse set...I had no clue as to what this was...(not big on sewing) so I googled and found this...I makes it look soooooo easy...I'm going to Joanne's today to see if I can find them! Anyways thought I would share the video I found on making them!

Here's a link of a bunch of different ones you can purchase online!

Yeah I found them...I'm waiting for my children to go to bed tonight before trying them out...I was hoping to find the heart & flower shaped ones as well, but only found the circles.

They are really neat. But honestly they aren't hard to make. You just cut a circle twice the size you want the finished one to be, sew a running stitch close to the edge and pull and gather when done. I made about 1000 of them for angel pins one year for a craft show. But I agree that this would have been easier. Other shapes, I didn't really know it was possible, I might still check them out. Thanks for the info.

A yo-yo maker? Huh. Never knew they made those...

And here I've been doing it the hard way by hand all this time, lol.

I can't find an image but I have seen a Mickey clip with a gathered ribbon circle for the head and 2 smaller gathered ribbon circles for the ears.

il_430xN_9344713.jpg I didn't make these ones

Here it is...I love these, they're so cute! I put googlie eyes on the ones I made last night! Does anyone know what other crafting stores that carry the yoyo maker? I bought large & small circle ones from Joannes...But I want to get the heart & flower one as well....I was so excited after I realized how easy & fast it is to use & now I'm addicted to making circles!!! LoL!

thanks for sharing. Without this forum I would be clueless about all these clever ways of doing things the easier way. Thanks!
