Pop Tart Coin Purse

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted. There has been much nesting going on here and not enough time to take pics or post.

Some of the nesting involved playing around with fabric scraps and making keychains with them. I had the bright idea that I was going to try to make a pop tart inspired keychain. I used some wonder-under to fuse the fabric layers onto some scrap interfacing that I had on hand.

This was my first attempt.

As you can see, it was a very hurried attempt at a pop tart. So hurried in fact that I fused the sides together before I realized that I hadn't even sewn any sprinkles on it yet. And everyone knows that it's not a true pop tart without the sprinkles. At best, this is a ghetto toaster strudel, and that just wasn't going to work for me.

So for my second attempt, I used some different materials and took my time and remembered to sew some french knot colored sprinkles on the frosting part. After I got the frosting part done, I realized that my keychain was going to be huge, so I decided I would convert it into a small coin purse with a keychain on the zipper.

Here is my pop tart, version 2.0.

Now prepare yourself for extra cuteness, because I had to use an appropriate lining for it...

Ah...I love it when a cute plan actually comes together.
