After colllecting buttons for a while from thrift stores, I decided to make a box purse and cover it with some of them..
I ended up giving to purse to Ann Magnusen, the actress, singer.
I've made a few more since that are nicer, but haven't photo'd them.
I also made cigar box purses many years before they were as popular as they are now.

Nothing is so simple that it can't be screwed up
