A quirky carrier for your monthly necessities!
This ice cream sandwich cleverly hides your tampons, making it easier to open your purse without fear of embarrassment.

This is an easy project for any newbie knitter. Basic garter and stockinette stitch construction on larger needles make this project fun to whip up! Fair warning, this yummy project might just increase those ice cream cravings!

    Step 4

    FINISHING
    With CC, seam the bottom edge of the ice cream lining to the bottom edge of the cookies. With CC, stitch the cookies to the lining along the inner edges only, to create pockets. There will be approximately ½" of lining visible between the cookies.

    Attach the button to the outer edge of the first cookie, opposite the buttonhole. Be sure to attach the button to the WS of the cookie—that is the side of the cookie that will be on the inside of the case, once closed.
    Weave in ends.
    Fold the whole thing in half, fill it up, and button it
    to secure. Tasty.

    You can get creative with your color
    combinations: dark brown cookie with
    a green liner for mint chocolate, or
    light brown cookie with a pink liner for
    strawberry.

I can't seem to use tampons, but I might try that in a bigger size for pad packets. ^ ^

LOL. Too funny (and very creative and cute too)! This would be one way to keep the guy(s) in your life from ever snooping through your purse again.
