There great fun to make because i just get to indulge in my button obsession. i also finished off these yesterday...the peculiar pictures because i don't want to give everything away....(they are mothers day presents....shhhhhhh.)
I'm not sure about the top two...i had to hand stitch some of the lining and I'm not the neatest hand stitcher. And I'm kind of worried about the button brooch (its for my mum and I'm pretty sure she doesn't look here...that's why the picture isn't as cryptic) i wanted one of those humongous safety pins...the ones with a funny folded bit at the end (like nappy pins but instead of the plastic bit on the ended its folded into a similar shape...eurgh i CAN NOT describe it) anyway i couldn't find one so went for the biggest safety pin i could find...but I'm worried it just looks like some buttons on a safety pin.
P.S. heres the finished bag....hope it stands up the crowds....one of the bands is pretty heavy...im scared of being squashed hehehehe.
made from a recycled tartan skirt, it goes over the shoulder and fastens with two chunky buttons from the ever increasing collection.
