Firstly gather your supplies:
- a tank top
- some fabric that either coordinates or contrasts
- buttons (with a shank work best)
- a Clover Yo Yo maker (if you don't have one of these don't fret. I have added some instructions on how to make these without one at the end)
I used the extra large size Clover Yo Yo maker

Step 1: Make 10 yo yo's
Step 2: Sew buttons in the centre of 4 of the yo yo's
Step 3: Work out your placement on the shoulders for three of the yo yo's in a strip and stitch into place from the back through the tank top and making sure you stitch a button into the centre.
Step 4: Make sure you stitch each yo yo together at the edge where they meet.
Step 5: Next attach the remaining 2 yo yo's at two points where they touch the other yo yo's and to each other.
Now you're done. Wear with pride!
