so many uses for yo yo's

Recently I've fallen in love with yo-yo's.   
They're so girly.  
So sweet.

I'd love to hang this garland in the ladybug's room.

This tin from my shop is embellished with a mint green yo-yo

My mom reminded me that I had a yo-yo doll when I was little.  I had no idea what she was talking about until she pulled it out of her basement.  
The whole doll is made from yo-yo's! 
I never would have thought to make a whole doll from yo-yo's!
Do you craft with yo-yo's?  
Leave a link in the comments.  We'd love to see it!

Back in the 70's, my mom made herself a bikini made of yoyo's. (It had a white lining, so it wasn't scandalous). Ha! It was all different colored tiny 1" yoyo's. I wish I had a photo.

I love yoyo's and have actually purchased some from Backyardprims. She has great fabrics! I used them to make hair clips for my daughter. If I find a pic, I'll show you. That doll is amazing!!!
