Fabric Yo-Yo Coin Purse Tutorial

First you want to 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 which you can adjust the size of your yo-yo to.

How to make fabric yo-yo's.

This technique was first shown to me by my Grandmother and I've been making them this way ever sense. There's something about making yo-yo's that's very therapeutic or zen like. They also make for great projects to take along with you on the bus, at the park, etc.

Supplies:

fabric pen, chalk or pencil
scissors
strong thread
fabric
cardboard
Geometry compass (optional)

With the geometry compass draw a circle with a 5 inch diameter onto the cardboard. If you don't have a geometry compass, try using a small plate or saucer to trace a circle. It' s okay if the circle isn't 5 inches in diameter. You'll just end up with a larger or smaller yo-yo depending on the size of your plate. Cut out cardboard circle. Trace the circle onto fabric. Cut out circle.

With the wrong side of the fabric facing up, fold the edge over about 1/4". Using a running stitch, sew around the entire circle close to the fold (refer to picture).


This is what your yo-yo should look like once you stitched all the way around the circle.

This is what the back (right side of fabric) will look like.

With the needle still on the thread, pull the thread tightly so the fabric cinches together. This is why you need strong thread, to keep the thread from snapping. Flatten and shape the yo-yo. Run the needle through the center back of the yo-yo and tie off. Done!

You now have made your first yo-yo! You can change the size of the hole and gathers by adjusting the size of your stitches. For example, larger stitches will yield a smaller hole.
