Yo-yo's are pretty amazing! So simple to make and the finished product is just so cute! I remember making these with my Mom when I was 5 years old, but instead of hair clips, we made them into pin cushions. I decided to stick with hair clips this time around, using different brocade fabric and making matching buttons using a simple button making kit I purchased from JoAnn's.

I really enjoy crochet as the supplies are portable (yarn and a crochet hook) and you can take it anywhere. This week I played around with rolled crocheted roses, found a simple pattern on-line that a I modified a bit, and came up with these:
