Normally I get bored after making something 2 or 3 times, but macaroon coin purses are definitely an exception! Here's my sixth!


I eat old mail stuff so was excited to try out the theme on a coin purse for a unicorn zombie apocalypse partner. The red and blue are added with a fabric marker. I wanted the blue back to match the blue airmail stripes so that's colored too!


Over the brown the blue looked more slate blue so I tried to pick that up with the zipper- plus I didn't want it to look too new! Smiley The top and bottom of the macaroon are covered 1.5" buttons so the interior isn't very big, but I keep finding uses for the pumpkin one I made for myself. It's surprisingly handy!


I embroidered on my unicorn zombie apocalypse partner's birthdate and a destination she said she liked for the postmark.
Ones I made previously are posted here and here if you're interested. Of course, they're posted there if you're not interested too Cheesy .

I can't wait to make more!

Golly, thanks! I'm so happy it's appreciated  Smiley
I'd eat to see what you guys come up with if you make your own! I have a list going of all the round things I want to try macaroon-izing. Oodles of fun!
