SLO up 1st side of purse, across the top of flap, and back down the other side.

Take 25” of thread and connect one end to the corner of the coin purse right below the flap. String on beads all the way to the other end and connect securely onto the other side of the purse.

Sew snap buttons to the flap of purse. I used one but would recommend doing two snaps.
