I Love this little Yo-Yo purse! Every time I carry it I get comments and people always ask about it. However, my new larger key fob and cell phone get kind of stuffed into it so I am making a little bit larger one.
Here’s the Yo-Yo how to:
I got out my Sizzix along with Circle #2 die and fabric scraps. You can just cut circles in any method you choose, but this is fast and perfect every time.
Stack several layers of fabric and roll through the die to cut your circles.
It’s hard to take a clear photo doing this…. but thread a needle and knot the end. Turn the raw edge under about a 1/8 th of an inch and using a long running stitch sew around the edges. I stack a lot of stitches on the needle…
Cinch the top closed knot the thread tight to close and then flatten smooth.
This is fast, fun and a terrific little carry along project.
Sew the yo-yos together by hand with a whip stitch at the sides and from the back to hide the stitches.
Make a lining to fit and hand sew and tack into place.
For the straps and closure I crocheted two long lengths and added a yo-yo for decoration
