I've been busy Grin


I love macaroon coin purses. Have I mentioned that? Here are...(1, 2, 3...) 4 more!




I love vintage travel and one of my favorite places is Pullman, WA. It's a little city on the east side of Washington. I went there several times for sightseeing and- back in high school -FFA competitions (it's home to Washiongton State U, our land grant college.) I have very fond memories of bookstores, farmland, and pizza Smiley

I made this macaroon for a swap a while back. Mine is version 2.0. The air mail stripes and writing are done with fabric pen, no embroidery. It, like all the ones below, are coated with sealer.




This one's a comic action bubble! Inside is a US quarter to give you an idea of size. The outside is about 1.5 inches wide. Heehee. I think it's funny that he's little but so forceful!




This cherry pie one I wasn't too happy with, but my friend did so it's okay! Phew! The back is covered in gray, like an aluminum pie plate.




Oh, Magic 8 Ball, *whisper, whisper, whisper*


He's not very definite, but I thought he was kind of cute! The 8 is written in fabric marker on white fabric and the surrounding black is fabric paint. I painted the back too, to keep the shades and texture the same. The writing gave me fits. I had to use this pretty bulky-tipped fabric paint pen to get the white to show up on the dark blue. I think it was worth it, though.



Sheesh, that was a lot of macaroons! C&C always welcome!
