Yo-Yo Pattern

**Note: You can set the yo yo maker directly on to the fabric and cut around the disk or you can pre-cut squares. Cut 8 ½” squares for the Jumbo Yo Yo and 4 ½” squares for the Large Yo Yo, set the yo yo disk and plate on the square, then trim to the disk.

Follow the layout illustration using thread that matches the joining yo yos. A whip stitch centered on the yo yos to be joined is all that’s needed. No backing or batting is required.

**Note: The border jumbo yo yos were added after the body was complete.
