Week 5 Project – Fabric yo-yo

In my previous post I was using for the center of my multi-layer flower a yo-yo. This is a very simple fabric flower which can be used as an accessorize itself or attached to a flower assembly.

1. You need:

– fabric cut in 2 size circles;

– scissors, needles, thread, beads;

2. Take a circle fabric and bend the margin inside. Start to stitch around as shown in the picture:

3. When you are done should look like this inside:

and like this on the other side:

4. After the whole circle is stitched as in the above picture, you can start to gather the thread:

5. Push the middle inside and arrange the pleats. Voila, you got your yo-yo. It is up to you if you would like to add a bead in the center or leave it empty:

6. At the end I got these small pretty ones:

Now you can use them individually as I did for multi layer  flower or you can create a small brooch by sewing them together

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial!
