Recently, I also bought a yo-yo maker, just because I'd been wanting to try it. (I've been thinking about making a garland for the tree (for next year) out of yo-yo's). There was a fun, free pattern for "Pennie Pockets" from Monica at The Happy Zombie the other day...so I got out the yo-yo maker!
I'll have to say...it was almost as fun as covering buttons. I could easily cut a stack of little squares and take the yo-yo maker, fabric and a needle with me wherever I go. I might get a lot of yo-yo's made that way! I also made prairie points for the first time since they were required for the "pennie pocket!"
