Oops! I’ve done it again! My photographer daughter, Stephanie, discovered a nice vintage Yo-Yo coverlet at a consignment shop with a pretty hefty price tag recently. While vintage is great, it’s a lot spend for photo props. So how about making one? Sure!! I love starting projects!
After testing the Clover Yo-Yo maker, I have to say I’m hooked! They are fun and easy to make and every one is perfect! Even a non sewer could make these and Stephanie’s planning to start making them, too.
I’m using the extra large yo-yo maker that needs a 5.5″ square of fabric. OF COURSE, I’ve just cut about everything I own into 5″, 2.5″ and 2″ squares! So, now I’m perusing my fabric again looking for larger pieces. Fortunately, for making Yo-Yos, you do not need the best fabric, so I’m digging out some of my older fabric from my sewing and crafting days. Just add color! I’m a little scared to figure out how many we’ll need to make, 625 for a lap size?
Have you made a Yo-Yo coverlet? Any tips or advice? I’d love to hear from you. If you have pictures, send them to linda @ lrdesignsquilting.com (remove spaces) and I’ll post them.
