i recently started making yo-yo's - they are called Suffolk puffs in England - and got addicted!
 I made a yo-yo covered bauble in pink and then decided to do another in more christmassy colours



what i used:
a 5" bauble
six different fabrics
i made about 17 yo-yo's - 1.5" - 2" & 2.5"
enough buttons for the yo-yo's
sewing threads and needles
ribbon for hanging

step one:  make lots of yo-yo's in different sizes and fabrics



step two:  add buttons to the centres to cover the hole



step three:   start sewing* the yo-yo's together keep
trying them on the bauble to check they are in the right place.
When the bauble was about half way covered it started to get a bit trickier as you need to pull and stitch the yo-yo's together trying to
avoid any of the bauble to show through
* it would save time if you glued them on but i didn't want to *



step four:  keep going pulling, overlapping and stitching the remaining puffs until the bauble is completely covered, add a ribbon to hang.





hope you like it  Smiley

What a cute use for yo-yos.  This one would even be sweet for Valentine's Day!  I like your choice of fabrics and buttons.  I'm going to go raid my scrap pile now.  Wink
