Consolation Prize

I couldn't resist after my sister reminded me she had made me the work skirt I no longer need.. when she didn't win the giveaway, I took the leftovers from the waist and made this little clutch. I used leftover liner but just faced it up to the facing from the original waistline. I wasn't sure I had the time or patience to do real buttonholes - my cheapo sewing machine pretty much makes you wing them, so for me, no two end up alike. But I thought the top needed something, so I put on some buttons on top of snaps. Ah ha.

Miss you, Sis!

  1. I miss you too. I hope you won't be offended if I switch out the small snaps for either some of the super duty purse magnets you can get now, or do button holes of my own. I love the buttons on it, they do add a ton of style.

  2. You know, I was certain I HAD some larger snaps, but I couldn't find them and knew you would have access to some, somehow. The buttons are bone, bought from a friend who bought them in South Carolina where they were made. I think they are cool too. Hope you carry many useful, beautiful, (or both) things in it.
