I used the cork coaster from my coffee table as a pattern. It was handy and turned out to be the perfect size, about 4 1/2 inches across. Fold about 3/4 of an inch over and put in a running stitch.
When you have come full circle, gently pull the thread as tight as you can and knot it off, but don't cut.
*A traditional yo-yo would not have the center or "eye".
The silk is heavier and that is as small as I can gather it together. So I came up with the idea of sewing a 2 inch circle on top, folding the raw edge under as I go. Don't worry about it looking perfect, they are handmade and are all unique.
Just be careful...they will take over...
Now the question is, what to make out of them, any suggestions?
