Quilt with yo-yos


Step 4: Create your yo-yo

Picture of Create your yo-yo
Once you have stitched the entire edge, pull the thread tight to draw in the fabric and create a gathered pouch.

Flatten the pouch so that a disc is formed.

Holding the yo-yo so that it doesn't unfold itself, stitch a few extra stitches through the first few gathers. Tie off the thread with a knot.

You have created a yo-yo! Repeat over and over until you have piles and piles of yo-yos!

TIP: When flattening your yo-yo, spread out the gathers so that they are nicely aligned and even before stitching through them to secure.
