Alright, today I'm showing off a little centerpiece I've been working on over the last two weeks. It was a bit time consuming, but I've had this on my to-do list for quite some time now. So it was time to finally make it.
Upon visiting the history museum in my hometown last year, I came upon an old pioneer blanket made of these cute little yo-yo's. I loved the look of it, so when I got back to Utah, I sat down and figured out how to make them. I even wrote a tutorial in which, I unknowingly called them "pinwheels". I had no idea they were called "yo-yo's" until about a month ago.
Apparently, some one out there makes a yo-yo maker. I'm not sure how helpful it is because these are seriously so easy to make without anything but fabric, thread, and a needle. Check out my tutorial here.
