I am nearly finished with my new bunny book, but I need to make one more project, just so the page count comes out even.
I found this nifty yo yo making tool at Itchin' to Be Stitchin' in Chandler Oklahoma over the summer and I decided to try it out. I'm now wondering if I can work some yo yos into a bunny pillow. Hmmm. It might be cute 😉
This tool makes great looking yo yos. I've detailed the process below:
Start by cutting a piece of fabric approximately 4" square.
Snap the fabric in between the two pieces of the yo yo maker, lining up the marks on the two halves. Then you simply sew in and out of the grooves provided. The stitches are big so it goes very fast.
Trim the "points" off your square to make it more rounded. Once you've sewn all the way around, snap the two plastic pieces apart and remove your fabric.
Leave the needle and thread attached. Pull the string and the yo yo magically appears. You have to mess with it just a bit. Pull it tight and use the needle to take a few stitches and make a knot to hold it together.
And that is all there is to it! Pretty fun.
