Today I'm going to sharing a tutorial over at the Kreaxions Blog for creating fabric yo-yo's using the Kreaxions Circle Cutter. Normally fabric would be a bit difficult to cut, but I have a little trick to add some temporary stability to it.
|Step 1: Ink fabric with Distress Inks. Wipe off extra.|
|Step 2: In order to cut fabric with the Circle Cutter you |
need to give it some stability. Using a glue stick,adhere
fabric to scrap paper. I just use cheap copy paper from
my recycling bin.
|Step 3: Cut circle from fabric/paper using the|
Kreaxion Circle Cutter.
|Step 4: Peel away the scrap paper. The glue |
stick provides a temporary adhesion and the
fabric will peel off the paper easily.
Step 5: Press down edges with your fingers andadd a running stitch around the fabric circle.
|Step 6: When you have completely stitched|
around the fabric circle, carefully pull the
thread to create the yo-yo.
|Step 7: Embellish with a button or gem.|
|And here is the finished yo-yo embellished with a |
button and added to the front of a tag. A bit of
stitching and a few paper leaves and you have a
handmade flower embellishement.
