Fabric Yo-Yo’s

I found a great tutorial on this website.
Great pictures.


And that’s what I used to make these:


Use hot glue to attach some yo-yo’s to the front of a blank card. I attached some ribbon first for some added color.


You could also attach a yo-yo to a paper clip to use in your office to bundle papers or you can use one as a book mark.


Or you can add some to your favorite black dress.
Or a shirt, or a purse, or anything else you think of.


Fun splash of color.

    I love the yo yo’s~ I saw them last week at Joann’s was so tempted to by them but a little more than I wanted to spend! I am glad I didn’t by then now!! I can’t wait to make some with all the extra fabric scraps. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful craftiness!!

    Do you have a tutorial for a diaper bag? I’ve been dying to make one and I haven’t seen exactly what I want.

    Hey Ashley. I don’t know if you remember us, but we were in the 17th ward back in the day. Anyway, I found your blog through Kenzie’s blog. I love all of your ideas! I’m not creative enough to think of my own things, so I’m glad I found your blog. Hope all is going good with you guys!

    Thanks!! Sari

    Sari, the link still seems to work. But here is the whole link, so you can try copying and pasting it into your own browser.


    Good luck!

    I really liked the ideas and your photos on using the yo-yo’s.
    Just about everything I make I put yo-y’s on.
