Next up, I whipped up a yoyo headband – – yo yos are made from circles – – so get your circles, needle and thread, and thin elastic. There are about a billizion how-to-make-a-fabric-yoyo tutorials out there, so google it, but basically you just do a running stitch all along the edge of the circle then pull it tight.
Arrange your yoyos how you want them, then hot glue them into place overlapping one another.:
Take your elastic and sew the ends together. Then hide where the ends meet under the yoyo bunch. I just put a line of hot glue along the back of the bunch and stuck it on the elastic – that’s it!
I love how it turned out!!
I got the idea of a fabric yoyo headband when I saw this on Pinterest:
And speaking of Pinterest and the GO!baby circle die, here are other things I want to do now that I can cut circles in no time:
See – the circle die is a MUST!!!
turned out so cute!!!
My niece made Kara the cutest hair flowers using circles. I’ll have the send you a pic. Basically it’s cirlces of various circumferences all stacked up with a button center. But the wow factor – she used polyester fabric and used a flame to “melt” the edges of the fabric – turned the edges up and rounded. Your new cutter would be perfect for this kind of project.
