The purchase of a YOYO maker a few weeks ago has led to this darling little Puppy Dog. It takes 82 large YOYOs. I made these while watching TV. It takes approximately 5 minutes to make 1 yoyo. I will cut the string longer next one I make and purchase a long doll needle. You must string the yoyos and then go back through them. If you don't have enough string, it is not easy to do. I stretched the seam on one side of the head so the nose seam is crooked--solved that one--just cut the felt nose BIGGER and cover it up!! Perfect for friends new little ones.
