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.
To decorate a cushion with a fabric yo-yo, the first thing you should think about is the design.
From there, choose the most suitable fabric (texture and color) to complement the cushion and then glue or sew the yo-yos to the cushion fabric.
As you can see there are different ways in which you can decorate a cushion with yo-yo, here we have some models:
You can cover part of the cushion with the yo-yos in simple shapes like lines, rows, or circles.
Similarly, you can choose to cover the cushion completely with yo-yos. Try combining various sizes for a different visual effect!
To achieve a cushion with an original look, go ahead and create designs that include fabric yo-yos either covering the entire cushion or using the yo-yos as a small decorative touch.
What do you think of this idea? Would you decorate the cushions in your house with fabric yo-yos?
