how to make fabric yo-yos: an easy tutorial
Here I provide an easy tutorial to make fabric yo-yos.
To begin, prepare your own yo-yo size template. Draw a circle in a white cardstock and cut it out. Keep in mind that the finished size of the yo-yo is almost half size of the paper template. So the template needs to be over double the finished size.While drawing the circle, I used a glass which provides a perfect circle.
Place the template on the wrong side of the fabric, using a washable ink marker. Cut the circle out using your scissors.
Fold under the outer edge to 1/4", using a running stitch to stitch along the outer edge.
Continue stitching with a runnning stitch until you have gone all around the circle.
Pull the thread tight cinching up the center.
Cinch the center tight and take the thread to the back, stitch a few times. These stitches won't be seen.
The hole will be centered and all the edges will be pushed out.
When you have a bunch of them sewn up, they are ready to be used up. Enjoy it!
