Who can resist the retro charm of yo-yo crafts?
Yo-yos are so easy to make and are great for using up scraps of all sizes. I used scraps in rainbow colors and scraps of soft linen to make these two stuffed yo-yo trees.
The pattern for these trees makes a 4" (10cm) tall tree - great for ornaments, dollhouse play, pincushions, or small trinkets to brighten up an office desk or windowsill.
Enlarge the pattern to make larger trees suitable for a mantle or tabletop display.
