    Linda – I love the embroidery around the yo-yo – it’s a perfect compliment. What kind of machine did you use for the embroidery and how did you get the circles so perfect? Lovely! Thanks –

      Hi Cathy, I think you are talking about the decorative stitches? These are standard decorative stitches on my sewing machine and I use a Janome 6600 but most sewing machines have a few decorative stitches. To get them perfectly round I use a tool called a circular sewing attachment.

    I have never thought of making a yoyo. These ones are so beautiful that I may just have to try it out with some beading.
