Yo-yos are taking over!

I've spent a couple of nights making yo-yos out of 30's reproduction fabrics:
Here are a few more of the fabrics. I need several more, but not to worry; I have a rubbermaid tub-ful:
These little wheels are addictive--just a few minutes to make, and they all look so-o-o cute. I'm using them for a future project.
Spring break here--where the deer and the antelope play children are not heard from, from morning till dark, and the skies are not cloudy all day the weather has been lovely yesterday and today, but will drop forty degrees by tomorrow, and maybe snow on Friday...

This may sound like a silly question, but how do you make the Yo-Yo's? I have always found them to be enchanting, but never knew how to make them. Could you please tell me how?

Dear Mrs. Hurzeler,

There is a great tutorial at:

Just click on the yo-yo icon on the sidebar. This is the one I "brushed up on" before I started this project. My memory had not served me well, if you know what I mean...the yo-yos were...not right.

When you know how, they are Easy and Fun, so have a go at it!
