I am not a yo-yo fan but recently I began to be converted b/c I have been seeing clothes with yo-yo's on them and thought they were cute. So maybe if I do it right, it could work. So I tried it out!
OMG first of all this thing was amazing! I could make yo-yo's so quickly and mindless, I loved it!!! I suggest if you want to make yo-yo's break down and buy this thing, it is so worth no frustration. I used all of fabric I had, cut out some circles (with my circular rotary cutter-love it too!!). And made yo-yo after yo-yo.
Next I added them to a black tank top I had that I got on clearance one day at Hancock fabrics. I layed them out to see what I wanted to do. I opted for the collar adornment. It just seemed to work. I also played around with some dark pearls I had but would wait to add them later...
I liked the way this looked so I began to sew. To sew them on to the top, I pinned them down and just added a few tacks of thread for each yo-yo and tacked between them too. I did one row at a time to reduce the amount of time I got stabbed with stray pins.
Next I added the dark pearls. I stuck to black ones in the middle of each yo-yo and scattered the gray ones among them all. Done!
Here is the product. :) I have a garment with yo-yo's on it that doesn't look childish or cheesy. I dig the collar. And I used up the rest of the fabric I had from that refashion.
Not bad for yo-yos! And here is to using up some of my leftover fabric. I'll give myself a +1 point for this project. :)
