I've never sewn a purse before, so of course I'd have to tackle a button purse as my first adventure!  My partner for the Make a Friend swap, thisbirdsabsurd, had one on her wist so I sourced a pattern, some fabric and a ton of buttons.  I originally had buttons on the bottom, too, but it weighed it down too much so ended up with buttons only on the sides. 
Here's a view of the front:


And a view of the back:


The lining.  I had to think about this project a bit before starting it.  I knew I didn't want the buttons sewn through the lining.

Thanks everyone!  It was fun to make, even with sewing on all of those buttons.   Cheesy
