Button Clutch Bag

From the Blogger: "Turn a plain old clutch bag into something special by covering it with buttons. This is a really simple makeover, but so effective. It will take a long time; this is definitely not a quick project, but the results are so pretty and such a talking point. If you are a button collector already, you will probably have plenty in your stash. Otherwise, start looking for bargains in charity and thrift shops. They are a great place to pick up old garments with loads of buttons that can easily be removed and reused."

This is such a cool idea! I love that you can likely make this project just by shopping at home for your supplies. What a neat craft!

So Cockney! Love it.

This is such a pretty bag, and I just love anything with buttons! You can keep it casual with more commonplace buttons, or glam it up with some sparkley gem type buttons for a fancy evening bag! Make a little pin made of buttons to match for your outfit! Thanks for a great idea! Love it!
