Yo-Yo T-Shirt

clover yo-yo makersHancock Fabrics has started carrying a great new product – called the “Quick” Yo-Yo Maker from Clover Manufacturing. These tools are a great improvement over the old-fashioned way of making fabric yo-yo’s where we learned to make circular yo-yos, using a cardboard template and nothing to support the fabric as you stitched around the circle.

Even a novice with a needle will be able to turn out great yo-yo’s because all you have to do is follow the guide on the template (see image at right – the holes are the guides you use for stitching). They are designed so that you come out with a perfect shape every time. When I first got this product, my 6-year old grandson helped me make some yo-yos. These are great for kids to use – they work like a sewing card, just make sure the child is old enough to understand the needle is sharp.

Fabric + Yo-Yo Makers, create lots of fun!

But, when you add finished yo-yos, and a plain t-shirt, then you get great FASHION!

What can you make with a few yo-yos? Check back with me next week, to see some other great ideas – and I’d love to hear what you’re doing.
