This is a short tutorial for making fabric yo yos. These cute little fabric circles can be used in lots of craft projects, from quilts to Christmas garlands.
Approximate Time: 4 minutes more or less per yo yo
If using the yo yo maker, you will either follow the same initial steps for cutting a circle with your template, or follow the instructions on your yo yo maker.
The manufacturer calls for using a square and cutting off the excess. Although it takes a bit longer to trace and cut the circles with the template, I prefer this method as it wastes less fabric.
My mom and I do a lot of crafts using yo yos and one issue we have had is figuring out what size templates to use to get the size yo yo we want. So we decided to make each of our template sizes into a sewn yo yo. We cut out each size from plain white fabric. Then we wrote the size of each yo yo onto the fabric using a permanent marker before sewing them shut. Now we can play around with sizes without having to waste good fabric as we design a craft.
This is a guide about making pieced scrap fabric yo yos. Yo yos don't have to be made from a single piece of fabric. You can make them from pieced scrap fabric squares, or leftover quilt blocks.
