Makine a purse

I've been working on making a purse. It's mostly sewn on the sewing machine, but I decided it needed something special, so I made a "button". I put some leaves on green velvet, added some gold embroidery and gathered it over a plain button with a shank, so I can easily sew it on to the bag. It was really fun working on a small project like a button, since you get to see results pretty quickly. Lately I just don't have the time I used to.... my daughter is in the marching band, so lots of time is spent at football games and band competitions.

The button was a perfect choice for dressing up your purse! Your daughter, and supporting her, come first, but this was a good compromise.
