I bought this today. A Clover "Quick Yo-Yo maker". I haven't sewn these for years and I have never used a template for them before. At first I thought it was too slow, but after using it a while I really like it. I am not one to measure things and with this little device you don't have to. Simply place the material between the templates, cut around them and sew through the ready make holes in the template. Draw in the cotton and voila - a dear neat little "yo-yo". I didn't even know they were called "yo-yo's".
Now - what to do with them - keep on making them and maybe they will become a quilt!! ??
This is what the large circles look like - they aren't very large though - 4.5cm diameter.
I also bought a small flower template. I haven't tried that one yet. They come in hearts too, but they were out of stock.
More fun than housework on a hot day.
