I find yo-yos to be a pain in the behind, so I can't imagine how many hours this must have taken!  That is SOME masterpiece!!

Seriously, the key to the yo-yos is the Clover yo-yo maker.  I would have never been able to do this without it. Now I want one in every size.  All you do is put your fabric in the frame and sew through the holes.  Remove the fabric and pull on your thread and you have a perfect yo-yo every single time.  It's like magic.

Thanks, everybody!  I really appreciate the kind words.

I've never claimed to be entirely sane when it comes to crafty (or when it comes to anything, now that I think about it  Cheesy).

The yo-yos are just attached to the underdress at the top.  I hope it holds through the laundry!

Thanks, y'all.
