Back in the mid-80s Provo Craft used to sell pkgs of all sorts of sizes of yo-yos! They were so fun to use and the pkgs contained about one dz so you had plenty to work with. I keep thinking my friend made hers by cutting various sizes of circles, then machine-sewing a basting stitch about 1/4 or so in from the edges, and gatheirng them to create her yo-yo. I think I recall she used button centers and made them into flowers. Can't quite remember for sure. Speaking of yo-yos, does anybody remember that song from the 70's that the Osmond Brothers sang--Just Like a Yo-Yo? I think that was one of the funniest "love" songs I've ever heard! Heehee!
