I was inspired by another Burdastyle member who made a lovely cozy for her water bottle out of yoyo’s.  I thought it was a wonderful idea, particularly since I’m always burning my hands on my non-insulated stainless steel water bottle when I put tea in it before I drive to school (oh how I wish I had time to enjoy a cup of tea before work).  So somewhere between Denver and Grand Island, NE, I made this one.  It reminds me of a little dress for my water bottle.  If you pull it down, it looks strapless, if you pull it up, it looks like a cowl neck.  It’s fun at any rate.  I think I need to put a backing on it, because the holes still let a lot of heat through.  That makes me sad because the backside of yoyo’s is even prettier than the front-side.  But function I think will win out over fashion this time.

Let’s hope none of my students do harm to my yoyo friends.

  1. Very cute.
    When does school start back up? We just finished our year and won’t continue until after Labor Day. Aah, one of the beauties of homeschooling. 🙂

  2. love it! i’ve been meaning to make more of these and can’t find the time. it’s a sad state of affairs when there isn’t even time to make a yo-yo…

    i found that putting a giant yo-yo on the bottom of my bottle helped it stay put. i’ve also been wondering about putting elastic round the top.
