My good friend Katie taught me how to make yo-yo's and it's seriously so easy, even for someone like me who *wants* to learn to sew, but just doesn't have the time. It's as easy as choosing fabric, cutting a circle, hand-stitching the edges, pulling it tight and closed and sewing a button on top. Voila!
I added my newly made yo-yo's (which, did I mention, took me a total of 10 minute to make, start to finish) to a pair of felted shoes I purchased at Target (clearance, $2.50).
I first saw something like this idea here, then my friend Amy made yo-yo's for hers, told me how easy it was, and I had to try it out. I love it!
Mel, you should be so proud of me.
