Do not make running stitches too small. Longer stitches make the circle easier to gather, and the “hole” smaller. —Marianne

1. Cut circles appropriate size for project.

2. Turn under raw edge of circle 1/4" to wrong side and take small running stitches around edge through both layers (Photo A). Use quilting thread or other thread that will not break when gathering.

3. Pull thread to gather circle with right side of fabric facing out. Make a knot to hold circle closed. Gathered side is front of yo-yo (Photo B).
