Going Yo-yo Crazy

Last night I finally broke out the Clover yo-yo maker I’ve had for the better part of a year. (Yes, I tend to buy things and not get around to using them. It’s a bad habit and I need to break it.)

Anyway, I have an enormous bag of scraps and decided to play around with the yo-yo maker to see if I liked the results. LOVE! I think I could spend hours stitching up these little cuties. Aren’t they adorable?

Of course, I have no idea what I’m going to do with them. Right now I’m just sticking them in a gallon-sized Ziploc bag until I get a few more, since there aren’t enough to really think about using. Well, except maybe as embellishments on purses or clothes. (Which gives me an idea for a half-finished outfit for Miss L. But I digress.)

I’ve been cruising Flickr for some inspiration and haven’t been disappointed. I love how these are displayed. This is gorgeous, but I don’t know if I have the patience for it (much less a bigger one). I’m totally going to use these as inspiration. I think the yo-yos on this purse are a nice touch. I’ve seen garlands, too, but I think I’d rather do something bigger with them. What have you sen done with yo-yos that’s cool or different?
