On yoyos and frugality

"Even little scraps of cloth were saved. And if an old curtain, apron, or other piece of clothing was too worn or stained for use, a small corner of it, an unworn or unstained piece of it, might be salvaged. The scrapes could be turned into yo-yos. "

Yoyos look something like round gathered flowers. They can be whimsical, fun, elegant and artistic.

A perfect way to use fabric scraps.

They can be used to make toys
