Deanna from Sew McCool shows how you can sew gathered fabric yo-yos using a special yo-yo making tool. The tool she uses is the same one I use to make my own fabric yo-yos. Fabric yo-yos are my go-to take along sewing project. I keep a project bag with yo-yo making supplies ready at the go for times I know I’ve got a while to wait (doctor’s visits, soccer practice, etc.) Then, when I need an embellishment for a hair accessory or brooch or bracelet, I’ve got a bag of colorful yo-yos to choose from. Go to Sew McCool for a tutorial showing how to make them.
