Assemble Yo-Yos

1. Thread a needle with matching or neutral thread and tie a knot about 6" from end. Place a green print A circle with right side down. Fold edge in a scant 1/4". Take small, evenly spaced running stitches near folded edge to secure it (Photo 1).

2. End stitching next to starting point; do not knot or cut thread. Gently pull thread ends to gather folded edge until a small gathered circle forms (Photo 2). Knot and trim thread to make an A yo-yo.

3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to make 19 A yo-yos total, 29 B yo-yos, and 14 C yo-yos.
