Store-bought Clothes Decorated with Yo-Yo's
Yo-Yo hat and shirt
I found cute winter stocking hats at the Dollar Tree for $1. But - they were very plain. Then I remembered that I had a bunch of colorful yo-yo's already made up that I could use to decorate the hats.
So here is an example of a cute pink hat I decorated for my new granddaughter, Millie. I also purchased a plain white turtleneck shirt from Walmart and added a few yo-yo's to the neckline. It's pretty cute for a quick-do! Easy and inexpensive!
Yo-yo's are made by cutting out a circle of cotton fabric (these yo-yo's were made from 2.5 inch circles). You just thread a needle and knot the thread. Then fold over the edge of the circle about 1/4 inch. You could iron the fold or just finger press it.
Now hand sew a running stitch all the way around and when you get to the end of the circle, pull the string so that it gathers. Knot the thread to hold it in place. Voila! A yo-yo is born.
I sewed the yo-yo's to the hat and turtle neck with a few french knots.
