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


I love old mail stuff so was excited to try out the theme on a coin purse for a swap 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 swap 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!

All we have to decide is what to craft with the time that is given to us.

Golly, thanks! I'm so happy it's appreciated  Smiley
I'd love 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!
