For those who might not know who/what NyanCat is, check out this video Cheesy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QH2-TGUlwu4
I'll warn you, it's not to everyone's tastes  Shocked but it makes me smile every time I see it!

I made this bag for a recent button swap (hence the buttons) and although I just made it as a random large bag for my swap partner to use for whatever, she informs me that it's the perfect size for her netbook, which is appropriate seeing as nyancat is an internet meme and the raison d'etre of a netbook is to access the internet. Anyway, on to the pictures!

Front:


Back:


I managed to put a zip in!


Lining too!


If I hadn't spent hours sewing on buttons, the bag itself would only have taken maybe half an hour to put together. It's a pretty simple pattern Smiley

What do you think?

@AshtonagoL I can't believe I sewed all those buttons either! I find it kind of therapeutic and actually I sewed a lot of them when I was recovering from a migraine and couldn't cope with computer screens etc. It was very relaxing!

This coin purse is so great! And I had no idea what nyan cat was, but I loved the purse anyways. Now I cannot stop watching the damn video. SO ADDICTIVE.
And nyaa is the same as meow in Japanese - I guess that's why it's called nyan cat?

I have to point out that this isn't a coin purse - it fits my 12" netbook in it!  And it's interesting that nyaa means meow.

This is great! (There are people who don't like Nyan cat??). I really, really like the button rainbow, it looks great, but it would have taken forever! The details on this bag are fabulous Smiley I can imagine it was hard to part with...

I love Nyan Cat and buttons and so this is just beyond awesome!! I think it would be amazing as a wall hanging too.

Maybe I missed it, but what did you use for Nyancat? Felt?

Thank you all for the lovely comments Smiley

Cinnacat, one of my friends has actually asked me to make something similar that he can hang in his office! *note to self, really must get around to doing that* The NyanCat itself is indeed made of felt, the blue fabric is a sort of heavy cotton and the lining is just standard lining fabric iirc.

I still amaze myself with the number of buttons on this thing. I think I got hypnotised by the sewing cos I don't really remember sewing them all on!  Grin

If anyone's interested I've now made a Nyan Cat cushion (amongst others) - less sewing involved on the cushion though, and no buttons this time. I was working to a tight deadline but would have loved to have repeated the button thing otherwise Smiley
