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
