How to Make a Fabric Yo-Yo Bracelet

Resource: Zakka Life

One of the nice things about making yo-yo's without a yo-yo maker is that you can make them in any size you want. Here I scaled down the fabric yo-yo to make a delicate bracelet. This is a simple project that you can make in one day. Simple directions below.

If you're not familiar with making fabric yo-yo's, take a look at this tutorial.

For the bracelet, I used yo-yo's that were just about the size of a quarter. To make a fabric yo-yo this size you will want to start off with a circle 2 1/8" in diameter. I used eight yo-yo's for my bracelet but it all depends on the circumference of your wrist.

Sew a button on the top of all the yo-yo's.

Sew the yo-yo's with a whip stitch with right sides facing together. Keep adding on a yo-yo till you get the desired length.

On the last yo-yo, sew a small piece of embroidery thread onto the back of the yo-yo. This will be your clasp. Make sure the loop will fit over the button well.

Here's what the front of it should look like.

The clasp on the right will hook over the pink button on the left to secure. Done.
