Laying out yo-yos

Yo-Yo Doily

Materials
  • Basic Yo-Yos to fill your desired size doily.
  • Invisible Thread
  • Hand Sewing Needle
Layout
  • Laying out the yo-yos is not as simple as it seems. Understanding Color Valueswill help lay out a pleasing design.
  • I found it best to take digital photos as I played with a variety of layouts. Seeing the images on a monitor surprised me with lines of color that I didn't see as I was laying out the yo-yos. I numbered my layouts and even gathered opinions from friends via email. The photo shown here is just four of the options.
  • Print out the desired layout as a guide. It is easy to lose track of where your design is going.
