Hey guys! I'm brand spankin new to the site so sorry for the links to the pictures.
So I was wanting to get a bit crafty and thought all of a sudden I just needed to have a nyan cat coin purse. So I whipped one up in about a day and I think it came out quite well! It's my first time using a zipper on anything and the lining came out pretty well. I'm super happy with it and can't wait to use it soon! I didn't take a picture of the back because it looks like the back of a poptart, I'm pretty sure everyone knows what that looks like...

here's the front:

and the lining:

Comments are totally welcome! and thanks for looking!  Grin

That's awesome. You know what would make it more awesome? Rainbow ribbons sewn under its tail to make the trail. I could see my kids running around the house with that singing the song for hours. My kids love Nyan Cat. My kids are geeks. I love that.

You did a great job.  Did you hand sew the lining together before putting it inside (or use a machine)?  So cute.

What I did was I sewed the zipper to the lining first and then used the extra fabric on the side of the zipper to sew it to the crocheted part. I only wanted on seam to be visible on the inside and I didn't want the extra zipper part seen on the inside as well. I also embroidered the sprinkles instead of crochet them in (I'm sorta lazy haha)
