4 months, 1.5 kilograms of buttons and many, many swear words later, I give you:

"Cute As A Button"

Inspired by a bag which I saw in a museum (which had a panel of about 30 buttons on the side), this thing took on a life of its own! I don't recommend trying to replicate unless you want to lose your sanity  Grin

That is what I was thinking as I saw it.  That is a lot of work to sew on all those buttons.  Amazingly amazing.  I totally love it.  Almost makes me want to do something similar, almost. Undecided Wink
