Japan is just awash in adorable little accessories and things that can make even the most hardened person want to let out a big ol’ squeeeeee! every so often.

I was able to go to one of my favorite craft stores the other day (Mano Creare in the Futako Tamagawa Rise Mall…which incidentally I’ve written about for Cut Out + Keep‘s Snippets Magazine before)…and couldn’t resist buying a little kit to make a mini felt cookie-shaped coin purse.


Apparently these “Macaron Coin Cases” [read: round and double-sided, like a macaron) are currently all the rage here in Japan and are flying off retail shelves by the dozens (as well as the kits to make them!)(photo collage from Google “Macaron Coin Case” search results)

It took me about 20 minutes, tops, to make.


Now, the finished product is super, super-tiny, so it could only fit like 1 or 2 coins…so is pretty much useless as a coin purse.  But it’s so adorable I couldn’t help myself!

Now I have it hanging from my bag and I just love it!  (Knowing my luck, I’ll probably snag it on something and lose it next time I leave the apartment.)

P.S. Which in fact I did about 5 days after I wrote this post draft.  *Le sigh.*  Oh well, I can just make another one!
