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!
