The yoyo originated in the 1930's. It was also called puff, pom pom, rosette, pinwheel. Back then, even the smallest piece of fabric was precious. Scraps from sewing projects were used to create coverlets and table covers. Even worn out clothing was checked for a usable piece! This is a perfect way to save pieces of a loved one's clothing and make into a "memory quilt"! I can remember looking at my grandmom's (we called her Babci) yo yo quilt she kept on her porch swing and pick out which pieces came from my clothing!

Historical Context:

The Yo-Yo quilt was a popular style of quilt making in America from the 1920-40s. Yo-Yos, or tiny circles of fabric, were gathered up at the edges and sewn together to create a three-dimensional effect. Yo-Yo quilts were popular because women could carry the little circles of fabric with them and make Yo-Yos whenever they had a free moment.

Another way to explain the popularity of the Yo-Yo quilt may be its association with the toy called the Yo-Yo, very popular in the 1930-40s. There are many theories or ideas about how long the Yo-Yo has been in existence. But we know that a wooden toy with a string looped around the center axis was developed in the Philippines over 100 years ago. Some people believe that the Yo-Yo comes from the Filipino word for “come-come” or “return”. In the 1920s a man named Pedro Flores brought a Filipino Yo-Yo to the United States. A businessman named Donald Duncan bought the Filipino Yo-Yo Company around 1928. In 1932 Mr. Duncan received a trademark for the word Yo-Yo.

All of my yoyo's are created the same meticulous way they were back then. With each little stitch, I'm reminded of my Babci and her beautifully handcrafted quilts.

I've already done the hard part for you! All cut and ready to stitch!....30 fabric circles to make finished yoyos. All from 100% cotton and cotton blends. Colors and prints may vary from photo but will be a nice selection. From my private stash of fabrics collected over the last 40 years. Some vintage, some new fabrics. Also included are my exclusive, easy-to-follow illustrated directions and 5 templates in each size to cut more circles with your own fabrics.

Use to make quilts or decorate clothing, hats, lampshades, table runners, pillows, frames, curtains, curtain tiebacks, mats, garlands, package ties, placecards, necklaces, brooches, wrist cuffs. I have shown some pictures of finished yoyo's and ideas on how you can use these little treasures.

The information on how to make the yo-yos was good and got the job done; however, the yo-yo "templates" were poor quality and shipping was very slow. Overall glad I purchased.
