I made this for my sister as a gift. The outside is covered in far too many buttons (hand sewn, ouch) and the lining fabric is a comicstrip-esque stuff from the fabric store. I used an old clutch handle from the thrift store.







now I can always push my sisters buttons. or something lame like that.

i'm in love with that clutch!  How long did it take you to sew all those buttons on?

it took me soooo long to sew the buttons on. four hours, I think. Being the super smart person that I am, I originally glued the buttons on...then proceeded to peel them and the hardened glue off when I realized that that was a not so good idea. my fingers were sore for days. not to mention the bleeding.

It's gorgeous, though! I'll bet your sister loved it!

I can't believe you sewed on that many buttons! I wish I was your sister! Where'd you get that many grey buttons? I keep trying to find large amounts of buttons, but I can only find brown, which is boring. Glad you mentioned glue not working though, maybe I don't need buttons after all....

WOW.   Shocked  That is so uberfantasticallyawesome.  It only took four hours to sew all those buttons on?  I just adore that lining fabric, too.  Where did you find all those buttons in the same shades?  (I'm a closet button feak, haha  Grin)
Man, I'd be bowled over to get something like that from my nonexistant sister!!
