Yo-Yo Flower Headband

With scraps of fabric and the Circular Attachment (#920344096), you can make pretty yo-yo flower hair decorations in no time. Just change the color and quality of the fabric and the size of the circles and you can totally satisfy your creative needs.

We used three different fabrics and three buttons. The finished flowers were stitched to a diadem. Use fabric pieces, large enough for circles measuring 8”/5½”/4¾” (20/14/12cm).

Attach the Circular Attachment to your machine and set the size you want. Set your machine for straight stitch, stitch length to 4 and decrease the thread tension. Start sewing the first circle, if your fabric is very thin, you might need to help feed the fabric slightly. Stop sewing when the seam overlap approx. ½” (1 cm). Leave the thread ends (approx. 4” (10cm)).
1. Cut out the circle ¼” (6mm) from the seam.
2. Carefully pull the thread ends (one in each direction) until the circle is gathered to a flower.
3. Push the raw edge into the flower and fasten the thread.

Repeat with the other fabric pieces.
4. Finalize the flowers by sewing a button to the center of the flower.

5. Arrange the flowers as you wish and stitch them together by hand from the wrong side. When satisfied stitch them to the diadem.

Once you have started it’s hard to stop. The type of flowers you can create are endless, by altering the fabric, color and style of buttons, you can change the end result completely.
