The Yo yo flower

Here is the Yo yo tutorial.
Materials needed:

  • Fabric
  • Matching thread
  • Needle
  • Button, beads, smaller yo yo to go in the middle
Start by cutting a circle out of your fabric. Keep in mind that your Yo yo will become about a 1/4 of the size of the original circle so make it bigger than you think:)

Take a part of the edge and fold it over about a 1/8 of the way in and begin this:
Pull needle through and continue to fold and stitch all the way around.
Until it looks like this:

Now pull the thread tight and bunch the circle until it looks like this:
Now the right side is showing. Push the scrunched part to the middle of the circle and fluff it up a bit.

Secure the stitch on the back. Now you can either snip the thread and hot glue beads or whatever to the middle, leave it alone and put a clip on the back OR you can leave the thread attached and sew it onto a piece of clothing like I did to Amaree's skirt.
After I stitched it, I glued a button on top to give it some pizzazz. I also made a little Yo yo to put on a bobby pin for her hair:)

Now you are done!

Have a wonderful day!
