How to sew a fabric yo yo

Fabric yo yos are decorative and simple to make, once you know how you will love to put it on to everything :)

Cut the cloth into a circle any preferred size. The final product will be about half the diameter of the initial circle. Can keep a round shape object, draw and cut.

Fold and sew a running stitch by folding a little or leaving it as is. Folding will give a clean stitch.

Keeping the finger in the middle pull the thread slowly and tighten it. And then stitch to the back so it doesn't unravel.
