Prudent Baby shows how to gather a circle of fabric into a yo-yo. You can buy a plastic yo-yo maker in the notions section of the fabric or craft store, but they’re not necessary to make fabric yo-yos. Prudent Baby’s method requires just fabric and a needle and thread, and a pretty button for the center. You can use the gathered fabric circles as embellishments for t-shirts, bags, pillows, hair accessories, etc. Get the tutorial for the low-tech fabric yo-yo at Prudent Baby.
