A couple weeks ago, Arrow Cabinets sent a call out on their blog for contest entries in their Yo-yo contest.
You might ask, what is a yo-yo? Essentially, it is a little gathered fabric circle. In the past, I’ve had absolutely no use for yo-yos. I’ve always thought they were very “granny” looking. Since I won the last Arrow contest with my cactus pincushion, I thought I would give it another go… with the true challenge being finding a way to make yo-yos look cute.
Each bracelet uses about 25 mini yo-yos, and took a couple hours to make. They require some tiny stitches and nimble fingers, but there is nothing especially tricky about making them.
If you want to make your own, here is a step-by-step tutorial that shows you how…
Fabric marking pen
Needle & thread
Scrap of felt
Finished… now time to make some more!
