This is the most simple diy ever!
Anyone can make these (as long as they are old enough to use a needle). I've been making them since I was probably about 8 years old. I don't know if they're technically called yo-yo's, but that's what I've always called them.

There are so many endless things you can do with them! 

Step 1:
Make a pattern or get something round that you can trace around. You can make the circle any size you want, but remember the yo-yo will end up about half the size as the original circle. Use your pattern to draw a circle directly on the fabric and cut it out.

Step 2:

 Take a needle and thread and fold the fabric towards the center as you sew around the edge. The picture is pretty self explanatory.

Step 3: 
Pull the tread as tight as you can until it all gathers together.

Step 4:
after it's all gathered, push the needle through the center of the yo-yo so that it comes out the back. This will help hold it flat. Tie it off and you have yourself an nice, cute, super easy yo-yo!
