Macarons... but not from my kitchen

... or anyone else's. This macaron was created in my sewing room. It is just a test to see if I could work out how to make one so the fabric was just a few scraps from the top of the remnant bag in my craft room. I had to shorten the metal zip (an exercise in patience, strength and lightening reflexes... almost lost an eye - twice). I think it turned out kinda cute.

It is all hand stitched... including the zip (something I've never done before). There is a little ribbon loop on the back so it can be hung off a bag (in theory). It is quite small but can fit about four or five coins inside. I am sure you could fold a few 'emergency' banknotes into it too.
