A little bling never hurts, so I'm making a few YoYo hearts for the Friendship Mini. I hadn't made these in so long I had to get out the directions.
Fabric and Heart Maker Tool by Clover ArtNo.8704

Stitching completed - popped out of disc/plate

First heart - just pull up the stitching thread and ease into shape

2nd Heart: secure thread by taking a small tuck to improve shape. Not a part of package instructions, but improv is always good, eh?

2nd Heart - this one has a little tuck in the back, then secure thread end
You be the judge: do you like Heart #1 or Heart #2 better? Does it really matter? Do they both look like hearts? There might be tiny little beads in the center of the hearts when I stitch them on the quilt - the washable kind.

So, this is what I am working on today. Hope to finish it by tonight. Until next time. . . . what are you making today?

Quilty Hugs,

I have made these little yo-yo hearts and I totally agree your little improv tuck really does improve the shape. Well Done! Missy is beautiful. Weekend Bliss...

These are really neat and yes they certainly do look like hearts :)

I love yo-yos. I love hearts. What a combination! Can't wait to see the finished quilt.

I hope to quilt mine tomorrow. We shall see.

Cute heart yo-yos Cyn! They both look like hearts but I really like the 2nd one best...TFS

Yup, the second one does look best, though they are both cute :) I have some of these yo yo makers some where.
What am I making today? Cherry and Plum(mainly plum could have done with another punnet of cherries) Jam. Smells wonderful :)) May sew at some point this evening. hugs Ellyx
