I blogged about this before, but today I took some better pictures. I’m actually really pleased with this garland, and it didn’t take that much time to make. One of the most fun parts was chosing the fabrics. I still have a huge stash of remnants waiting to be yoyo-fied. These little yoyos are pretty versatile. They can be made into ornaments, present toppers, hair clips, brooches…..
The best tutorial I found online is here, by Heather Bailey.
If you have some fabric remnants lying around why not have a go. I would advise a mix of patternered and plain fabrics, and I would try to stick to one colour scheme (something I intially found very difficult!). Also worth noting, the yoyos look very different once they are in shape, you won’t recognise the pattern on the fabric. This means it’s a great way to use up the boring floral patterned fabric sitting in your draw. Have fun!
