recently I got about 120 bottle caps from the nice cashierat the grocery store, many of which were CocaCola and Pellegrino. I really liked a checkerboard pattern, so the messenger bag was born. It is fully reversible, I was just too lazy to take all the stuff out of my purse to turn it inside out. Wink You can see the fabric on the inside flap. I'm not sure if this belongs in reconstructed, it being with bottle caps and all. Huh Well, without further ado......

question: how did you get the bottlecaps to stay on?

when there's nothing left to burn, you have to set yourself on fire.

I punched 2 holes in them w/ a nail and hammer, then sewed them on like buttons.

Wow! I love the bottlecaps-as-buttons idea, and the green reverse side is cute too  Smiley
