i recently started making yo-yo's - they are called Suffolk puffs in England - and got addicted!
I made a yo-yo covered bauble in pink and then decided to do another in more christmassy colours
what i used:
a 5" bauble
six different fabrics
i made about 17 yo-yo's - 1.5" - 2" & 2.5"
enough buttons for the yo-yo's
sewing threads and needles
ribbon for hanging
step one: make lots of yo-yo's in different sizes and fabrics
step two: add buttons to the centres to cover the hole
step three: start sewing* the yo-yo's together keep
trying them on the bauble to check they are in the right place.
When the bauble was about half way covered it started to get a bit trickier as you need to pull and stitch the yo-yo's together trying to
avoid any of the bauble to show through
* it would save time if you glued them on but i didn't want to *
step four: keep going pulling, overlapping and stitching the remaining puffs until the bauble is completely covered, add a ribbon to hang.
hope you like it
