Voila! I give you the Rainbow Sparkly Yo-Yo T Shirt.
This top is very easy to embellish. It’s a store bought t shirt. I used leftover pieces of fabric from the skort (tutorial coming in part 3) to create the yo-yo’s, which I then appliqued to the top. I’m not sure if you can determine in this particular picture, but I added a clear rhinestone to the center of each yo-yo to add some sparkle. In the words of my 3 year old, “Little girls love sparkle, ya know.” (I have no idea why she ends everything with “ya know.” None of us says that.)
Thread a needle (and technically, the thread does not have to match because it’s totally hidden. this is why I used black, so it would show up in the pictures.)
Then fold over about a tiny hem about 1/4 inch from the edge and begin sewing a gathering stitch all around the circle. The longer your stitch is, the tighter your gathers will be and the smaller your center hole in the yo you will be. If you take shorter stitches, the hole will end up larger and your yo-yo will not be as gathered. I took long stitches.
My rhinestones were about 2.5 to 3 mm in size. The package did not have an exact size. You might need smaller or larger rhinestones if you ended up with smaller holes than me. Allow to dry overnight before wearing.
