This was a small purse I got from a thrift store. I have a ton of buttons ! I know you do too ... use as many as humanly possible in this project. Just start sewing buttons anywhere you please. I went out and bought some specialty buttons to spice it up a bit my favorite place for buttons is joann's. I love how my little clutch turned out ! Might not be luxury but it's unique and mine. The color options are so endless ... vintage buttons = steam punk... oh that might be next.
