Flower Blossom, Powder Puff, Bonbon, Yo Yo: The Roots Run Deep
Learn the history of this ornamental fancywork technique that achieved popularity in the 1930s. According to Virginia Gunn, “The yo-yo technique is simple: circular motifs are made by cutting fabric circles, turning under the edge of each with a small running stitch , and drawing up the stitching to form a two-layered disk with a small hole in the center of the top layer. Usually the fabric disks are joined with an overhand stitch to form a lacy fabric of circular motifs, or the individual disks can be appliqued to a background fabric.” Learn all about this technique in Virginia’s article.
