Aren't they adorable?
I had the lofty idea of making these for people this Christmas, and putting something cute and clever inside for the lucky recipient.
I bought supplies to make several, but I kept putting it off. I was terrified of hand sewing, you see, so I changed my mind and bought/made gifts for everyone, except for this one macaroon purse for my sister.
Of course I put it off until the night before I was supposed to fly home.
And... it's okay. It shows my lack of hand sewing skills, I think.
I changed a few things from the original tutorial. Mostly, I made it plushy inside and out, rather than hard. It increases the storage potential of the pouch and makes it soft and nice.
|Of course, plushy also makes it lopsided.|
And perhaps not so much like a strange monster.
