Yo-yo decorated cushions


I declare myself a fan of fabric yo-yos as they are a great resource to use the fabric leftovers and also are useful to make an innumerable amount of projects. Today we’ll see cushions decorated with yo-yo, to inspire you to join this trend.

If you still don’t know how to make recycled fabric yo-yos I recommend that you first practice making some before embarking on any project that includes them. While they are easy to make, it takes some practice to get them as symmetrical as possible which is necessary if you want to use multiple yo-yos. You can see some examples in Ideas for using yo-yos and How to make a yo-yo tablecloth from recycled fabric.

As you can see there are different ways in which you can decorate a cushion with yo-yo, here we have some models:
