DIY Fabric yo-yo Coin Purse
Upon 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.
Coin purse frame set (pictured above) – I purchased this one at Daiso. You can also find them on Amazon.
Fabric and matching thread
First 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.
Hand sew wrong sides together with a whip stitch (refer to blue dots in photo).
Cut raffia (should come with kit) to the length of your frame. Sew on to the opening of both sides of the purse.
Add glue to inside of the frame. Push fabric into the inside of the frame. Crimp the frame closed with a pair of pliers. Cover frame with fabric when crimping to protect the frame.
*Usually a purse frame will come with instructions similar to this tutorial.
