A few months ago, Jackie of Posh Paperie created another gorgeous tutorial for Style Me Pretty. These divine yo-yos are so versatile…they can be used as decoration for gift wrapping, to dress up your favors, hair accessories, or even as the decor themselves. I have attached a pin-backing to mine and use it for a pop of colour on one of my clutches. Quick, simple and pretty!
– needle & thread
– silk fabric pieces (cut into circles)
Step One: Sew around the edges of the circle.This creates a pull or a “rouche” on the edges.
Step Two: Continue to sew around the edges.. making the flower start to take shape by allowing a half circle to form.
Step Three: Continue sewing to finish the radius of the circle.
Step Four: Knot the thread and cut the excess thread.
Step Five: Create various different sizes.
I just love these!
