**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.

Assembly:
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.
