Have you heard of sewing
Yo-Yo's before? Until the last couple of months I had never heard of
them. My grandma recently bought me a kit to make them. Since it is
sewing month I thought I would share my first experience with Yo-Yo
making. They sell these kits in craft stores and you can find them on
Amazon. There are many different shapes and kinds. They even have
Butterfly shaped Yo-Yo's.
The kit I used was somewhat easy.
You could make Yo-Yo's without a kit. However, if you are an
inexperienced sewer you will definitely want to purchase a kit. I
followed the instructions to a Tee. I did have problems with the
instructions at the end. After doing a little guess work I figured it
out. It only took one try and I had a Yo-Yo.
I thought the Yo-Yo's were neat
but I was not sure what to do with them. My pillow's on my couch had
three plain brown buttons on them. So I decided to put my Yo-Yo's on
the buttons to give it a pop of color. It took me about an hour to
make 6 Yo-Yo's. By the time I was on my fourth or fifth one, I was
able to make one in 5 minutes.
Has anybody else used Yo-Yo's for your
sewing projects? If so please share with me what you did in the
comments? I would love to make some more and see what I can do with
Happy sewing this month!
