DIY Fabric yo-yo Coin Purse

Yo-yo Coin PurseUpon request, I’m re-posting the directions for making a fabric yo-yo coin purse.  It was first published in 2011.  The tutorial for this coin purse was also published in Haute Handbags Magazine.

Supplies:

Coin purse frame set (pictured above) – I purchased this one at Daiso. You can also find them on Amazon.

Fabric and matching thread

2 Buttons

E-6000 Glue

Scissors

Pliers

DIY yo-yo coin purse 3First create two fabric yo-yo’s. The size of your yo-yo’s will depend on the size of your purse frame. Most frames come with a pattern.  You will need to make your yo-yo’s the size of that pattern. You can find the directions to make fabric yo-yo’s here.

For the top photo, I used the origami paper to fold a heart.  It also happens to be the perfect size for a drink coaster.  Directions for the heart can be found at Origami Club.

Printable: Sun and Cloud Origami Paper

Sun and Cloud Origami PaperA couple of weeks ago I asked what origami prints you would like to see next.  Rin recommended “baby prints suitable for a nursery”.  I must admit, this was a challenge for me.  When I think of a nursery, I see pastels and animals.  However, I know nursery rooms are more contemporary now featuring greys and chevron prints.  That said, I think these sun and cloud prints meets somewhere in the middle.

I made two versions of the origami paper: blue and purple clouds.  Links below for the free download.
