I like to hold straight pins in my mouth.

Edit: I thought I had copy/pasted the info but I guess not, whoops!

The coin purse frame is sewn on, I drafted  my own pattern which includes a lining. I use regular fleece and a light interfacing for shape.

Love the idea about the missing antennae! Too easy not to do, thanks!

This is so cute! Can you tell us anything about it? How you made it, is it lined, did you hand sew the frame on?

It's nice to see a Sprite (Romeo in this case) getting some love, instead of the usual focus on RB herself.  I like the rainbow-patterned fabric you used around the edge of the purse too.  You should consider adding Romeo's missing antennae to complete his signature look--I imagine they'd be easy to stitch, or you could leave them hanging free, with beads or something on the ends, which would also look neat.
