That is amazing! I would totally buy that.

You must have amazing patience and I love how you must have collected all the buttons to match - I'm in awe!

Wow, that thing is gorgeous! I've made bracelets with 30-40 buttons on them and I thought I went crazy doing just that, I can imagine how much hard work went into a whole bag.

Sooo I'm just going to ignore what you said and try a something like your bag because it's just so damn pretty. Maybe I'll wait until I am bedridden or something though, hehe

Actually, I have to admit I cheated a little there. I got packs of "Shabby Chic" buttons from a craft store, each one had hundreds buttons in it in the 5 colours, and there wasn't a huge amount of shade variation with the colours, so that was quite lucky.

If I did it again, I would have striped it the other way, I think. Also, I forgot to take a photo of the bottom, I used large buttons of all 5 colours and sewed them down, plus I reinforced with glue also on the bottom to give it stability. There is a layer of interfacing also between the outer and the lining to keep it upright Smiley
