MAKE IT MONDAY - Yo Yo Bracelet tutorial

I am excited to be back with you for Make It Monday!  It's been a while since I have shared a tutorial with you, but this one is a goodie!  My sister Sherie made the most fabulous bracelets for all of us last Christmas and I am excited to share how she did it with you!  

Here is a quick video of the finished product.

Supply List:
  • 1 metal cuff
  • Fabric scraps
  • 20mm Clover yo yo maker
  • 30mm Clover yo yo maker
  • Needle & thread
  • Fabric Tack glue or hot glue gun
  • decorate buttons and/or beads

  1. Measure width of metal cuff and add 1/2" (image 1)
  2. Measure length of metal cuff and add 1/2" (image 2)
  3. Cut fabric for covering metal cuff to equal this measurement. (image 3)
  4. Fold in half, right sides together and sew along long edge using a scant 1/4" seam allowance. Open so that the seam is down the center and sew one end closed. (image 4).  
  5. Turn right side out and thread onto metal cuff (image 5)
  6. Fold open end of fabric in around metal cuff and hand stitch closed (image 6 & 7)
  7. Using your 20mm and 30mm Clover yo yo makers create an assortment of yo yo's.  I used (5) 30mm and (2) 20mm yo yo's. Glue along bracelet working from the center and out either side. 
  8. Embellish.  I added 2 buttons and then glued a pearl bead in the center of one of my yo yo's. 
Of course, the metal cuff that I used is available at Pine Needles as well as the Yo Yo makers.  If you haven't used these fabulous goodies you must give it a try - what a snap!

Here's a link to Pat Sloan's video on how to use them.
