GENERAL YO YO ANGEL INFO

Almost anything you want to know about yo-yo angels is on Shirley's main Craft Sayings Projects page. There are LOTS of poems for lots of vocations/situations.

http://www.craftsayings.com/projects/sm ... ndex.shtml

Archiver's Note: Here is a good suggestion for making good yo-yo angel wings - copied from a 04/04/04 post on the Sewing Announcement thread:

[> Re: yo yos with wonky wings, but how do you make a pin please? -- KrafteeKaren, 16:14:32 04/22/04 Thu [1]

Fay when I make my wings for the Yo-Yo Angels I make them out of the same size yo-yo that I make the angels from only out of lace or shiny material. After you stitch around the circle and pull the thread tight so that you only have a little hole in the yo-yo, I take and wrap the thread around the middle of the yo-yo a few times and pull it tight, it makes perfect wings everytime. If it doesn't for some reason, you can adjust it before you make your final knot. Hope this helps.

How to Make Quick Yo-Yo's

Subject: Quick Yo Yos

I may be the last one on the voy to know this, but if you are making a lot of yo yos, machine zig zag over crochet cotton, around the edge of the circle, then you can just pull up the gathers. A lot quicker than hand gathering. Easier on the old arthritic fingers too.

Judy, I would love to try this. Do both the 'zig' and the 'zag' need to catch the fabric or can one stitch run off the edge?

Judy, you must be genius!! I use this method for all my gathering when I am sewing, and never thought of using it on yo-yo's. Thanks for the tip, and I can't wait to get started.

Gee whiz! I use that method for gathering on clothing too, but never thought to apply it to yo-yos. Great tip - thanks Judy! [[hugs]]

INFO ABOUT 1-1/8" WOODEN BUTTONS WITH FACES FOR YO YO ANGELS

Date Posted: 20:42:33 07/29/04 Thu
Author: Londonlee
Subject: YoYo's

HELP!!! Please I'm back trying to help a group of Seniors (some are first time crafters but most of them have physical & mental challenges to over come) with crafts for a bazaar to be held in November. I thought that YoYo Angels might work well for them. Material,lace & ribbons I have in abundance and I found 1-1/8" wooden buttons with faces already on them that will work. My problem is that I didn't save any of the cute sayings or poems to go with them, 'cause "I wasn't going to be doing this again".The poems are what makes the YoYo's so adorable.

Please will somebody share some with me for them? It would mean a lot to a group of old Dears.
Thanks
Lee

Londonlee, Where did you find 1 1/8 inch wooden button faces? Are they sorta flat or are they like a round bead? That info would be greatly appreciated.

[> Re: YoYo-- Londonlee, 13:08:38 07/30/04 Fri [1]

Thanks I really appreciate getting these. I think the ladies will enjoy them.

I found these 'button' heads in a dollar store in London Ontario. They have slightly domed faces that remind me of the button forms that dressmakers cover. I have never seen them anywhere else.

This is what is printed on the bag topper.

DB010

Button Face - 8PCS/BAG
SIZE: 3cm(D0 x 0.7cm(T)

The brand is:
Crafts Medley
Imported by
MultiCrafts Canada
Ottawa,ON.Canada
Made in China

Maybe this information will help you track them dowm.
