Yo-Yo Art Plain-Jane yo-yos are elevated to a new level when mounted on a painted artist's canvas and presented as a wall hanging. These yo-yos, all fashioned from Kaffe Fassett prints for Westminster Fabrics, are assembled in an unorthodox manner; some are right side up and others are upside down to show off the colorful prints. Sew yo-yos together; then attach them to the edge of the frame.
Button Flowers Add pretty little flowers to a plain pillow by using the quilter's yo-yo technique. Stitch around small fabric circles. Pull the thread end to gather the circles into poufs. Use pearl cotton and a stem stitch to make the stems and leaves; attach the poufs for blossoms. Sew a button to each blossom center.
