How to make fabric yo – yo: Step by step

Although it is an easy technique to make, it is better that you take a simple fabric to train as you make yo – yo and, only when you are already making the yo – yo flower, invest in bigger pieces, like a bedspread.

Learn the step by step below on how to make yo – yo to start decorating different pieces of your home:

Make a round mold for the yo – yo. Use glasses, lids or even an old CD to mark the yo – yo;
Trace the pattern on the back of the fabric using a pen or pencil;
Cut the circle with scissors;
Fold a part of the fabric inward, just to have a beautiful finish;
Baste the entire edge of the fabric: It is a simple stitch, which enters and leaves the fabric;
After basting, pull the thread to leave the fabric wrinkled;
Adjust the yo – yo with your hand to ensure that it looks the way you like it.
Ready! Now you know how to make yo – yo.

Oh, and if you want, after following the step by step how to make yo – yo, you can also decorate the center of it with buttons and stones, so it looks even more like a flower.
