how to make fabric yo-yos: an easy tutorial


Today I'd like to share how I make fabric yo-yos. These yo-yos are perfect to be used with anything from wearable accessories, bags, hommade decoration and for quilts of course. They are perfect to embellish anything. Making the yo-yos is so simple and just takes a little time to finish. Then you can use them anywhere you like.
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!
