1,000 Yo Yos

I'm asking for your ideas today....

Many years ago, my daughter gave me this vest. It has long since not been fashionable, but I didn't have the heart to give it away or discard it.

The treasure trove of yo yos are made of 100% silk, hand stitched. As you can see, from the photograph, the colors are spectacular.

"How can you help?" you ask. Give me some ideas on how to re-purpose 1,000 yo yos. It will take some time, but the thread can easily be clipped to separate them.

  1. Your right - way too amazing to discard...I am not a quilter, but it sure looks like a beautiful quilt could be made from those yo-yos! Can't wait to see what you decide!

  2. Dear Meggie, These yo-yos are so cute. And I think It takes a very long time to make 1ooo yo-yos. I have an idea maybe you like. You can make 2 cushions and a table runner set from them. And you can use them in your living room as a set. But these are very precious. And you are very lucky. All best wishes...

  3. A yoyo scarf; a yoyo bag; a yoyo quilt...
    This vest represents too many working hours but the result is wonderful.
    I hope you will find great ideas.
    Cheers from Belgium.

  4. My first thought was cushions. They would look beautiful made in such a wonderful fabric and amazing colours

  5. Oh wow....I love all the color too!!

  6. Beautiful yo-yos! I remember making a bunch with my grandmother years ago...great memories. I think we were making them for a quilt. I bet yours could make a couple of neat throw pillows.
