How to Make a Fabric Yo Yo Heart

 

With a slight variation on the classic yo-yo, create a fabric heart yo-yo to use on Valentine’s Day or for other craft projects.

 

  1. Cut a large heart out from scrap fabric. It does not have to be perfect; that’s the beauty of yo-yos!
     
  2. Turn 3/8 inch of the fabric under on the left side of the heart.
     
  3. Beginning at the top V-shaped indent of the heart, sew a long basting stitch counter-clockwise. Stop at the point of the heart, leaving a several inch tail of thread for later.
     
  4. With a second strand of thread, begin again at the V indent, but sew clockwise this time and end at the point of the heart. Leave a several inch tail again.
     
  5. Pull both threads until you create a gathered heart shape (it won’t be perfect yet) and tie the strands together to secure. A gap in the center of the heart is ok. You can use this side as the back of your yo-yo or cover with a button later.
     
  6. Take your threaded needle and stick it inside the heart and up through where the indent of the heart should be. Make a very small stitch where you want the point of the V-indent and pull back towards the center of the gathered heart.
     
  7. Secure this stitch to one of the gathers.
     
  8. You can now sew on a button to cover the gap in the center if you wish, securing to the gathers.

 

Use these heart yo-yos to embellish Valentine's Day gift bags or boxes, cards or handmade purses.
