Yep, I still love macaroon coin purses! Here's my seventh one, with a bit of a twist:


It's a macaroon compact!


Outside shiny, disco-ball-y, mirror-y fabric, inside real mirrors. I used that plastic mirror stuff and cut it to fit the small (less than 1.5") interior. It reflects great and wasn't too bad to cut either!




I used a metallic metal zipper and metallic ribbon to hold the silver clip. It didn't turn out as disco ball-ish as I'd hoped, but it is quite reflective  Cheesy


As I mentioned above, this guy is my 7th design. I just love all the things one can do with a circle! It's been so much fun. You should totally try it!

Oh, yay! I'm so glad you got on the macaroon bandwagon.

I mentioned some tips in your link (the next page over, I think) that made these much easier for me to make and give more room in the compartment. I hope you make more!

Thanks for the tips...I am trying to figure out what I can use instead of the buttons...they are pricey!  I have been looking everywhere for dome shaped objects! Grin

Also, I am going to try ditching the metal back inside piece...I think just having the fabric inside is enough to hold it together!  I will definitely try more!  I have been ripping out jean zippers for once my wrist and thumb heals...I do want to try again with my proper hand!
