Y is for YoYos

YoYo's are a sewing/quilting technique that I think will be fun in mixed media.
Using cotton fabric of your choice, cut circles about twice as large as the finished piece you want. Hand baste near the outer edge.
Pull both ends of the thread to gather the edges of the fabric together. I find it helps to place my finger in the center of the fabric. Tie a knot and cut off the extra thread.
 I've made a variety of YoYos, using different fabrics and sizes.
