I recently have become a fan of fabric yo yo's and tried my hand at a few. Mom guided me how to make them over the phone. However, I find that I am one of those people who has to have a form or hoop or something to work on fabric or I get agitated and it never turns out right.
My dear friend Stephanie purchased me a yo yo maker at Hobby Lobby.
Yesterday afternoon, I gathered my supplies and headed out to the porch swing to try my first yo yo with the maker. I placed my material in the hoop, cut off the excess fabric and stitched around through the holes.
I tied it off, removed it from the disk and gathered it. Here is my finished product.
Then I made a white one to go with it. I was going to make a red one, but I had to go to choir practice. I have a plan for them which I will share with you in a day or two when everything is finished.
I also picked up some orange fabric. I still need one or two more shades of orange.
Then I'm going to make me a little pumpkin for fall.
Now that I have a yo yo maker and have mastered it. I am in love with making yo yo's. Once I cut my material and started sewing, one yo yo took about 4 minutes to make. I am going to cut all my square for everything I want to do. Then when I go to make a yo you, I will just have to load the material and I'm ready to go. I do need to get over to Hobby Lobby though. I want some different size hoops now that I know how much I love working with them.
