Introduction to YO-YO's!

The following is a step-by-step on how to create a YO-YO!

Supplies you will need:
- 1/4 yard of Fabric
- Needles (Size 11 prefered)
-Thread (Sew machine thread will do)
-Button (Just for that added extra)
Step 1-
Cut your fabric
The size of your yo-yo will be approx. 1/2 the size of the circle you cut!
4 inch circle= 2 inch yo-yo

Step 2- Folding and sewing!
Put a knot in your thread, and thread it through the "right" side of your fabric (The good side of your fabric) your going to hand sew approx 1/4 inch apart.
Step 3: Pull it tight!
After you have sewed all around pull the string sight. This will create a circle in the middle. Create another knot at end. (So that your Yo-Yo doesnt come undone...)


Step 4: Cut the thread!



Now embellish! I use buttons! I love to use buttons!
