I feel like I've been away for ever! Even with the unusually warm weather, the winter illnesses are here in full effect. My kids seem to be sharing germs with each other, making it extra tough for me to find the additional time to work on my blog. I'm finally here and able to get started on the project that I wanted to share using that fabric I showed you a while back. The first part of the project is a simple tutorial on how to make fabric yoyo's. I love using yoyo's to make hair clips and headbands, but they have been around for ages and others have used them to make blankets, plush animals for children, wall hangings, embellishments for pillows, dresses, and much more.
Things you'll need:
*Scissors or a circle cutter
*If you're using scissors, something circular (between 3 and 4 inches in diameter)
to trace and a fabric pen or pencil
*Coordinating thread and needle
Once you have made it all the way around, make your final stitch so that you needle is right next to your original knot, but pull the needle out on the right side of the fabric, (the opposite side of where your knot is). Then pull the thread until the fabric all comes together like a little pouch.
And there you have it, a cute little yoyo!
