No really…. even if you send me something as small as a button–if it’s a cool Polka Dot Creations button–I’m going to have to make a purse based on it. The brown purse is from a thriftshop, great leather, clean inside (except there was a sample vial of perfume in one of the pockets). Before:
The button is attached with thread, after I got Peter to drill holes in the leather. There’s a lot of gesso, acrylic paints, sharpies, modpodge, krylon. (See my altered purse tutorial here.) And that button.
