A yo-yo, called also a Suffolk puff, is a small simple project in manipulating fabric. It is extremely easy to make: it can be created out of fabric leftovers, doesn't require more tools than scissors, a sewing needle and a thread.
Yo-yos come out great made of medium Muslin or cotton, but if you are tempted to try more difficult materials, like silk, velvet... go for it!
Any thread which doesn't snap easily will do.


How to make a yo-yo? It only takes minutes...
Pic.2, from: Colette Wolff,
The Art of  Manipulating Fabric, p.23



Cut a circle out of fabric. It has to be twice as large as the intended form
a) turning the edge of circle inside, tack with even stitches. Remember: large stitches make small center opening; small stitches make it larger,
b) gather tightly and flatten.






What can we do with yo-yos?
