Button Bag

Here’s the bag I made with those buttons from the flea market. I used soft fuzzy brown fleece for the outside, floral napkins from the thrift store for the lining and handles from a thrifted bag. My favorite part is the soft soft fleece. All bags should be this cuddly!

I just finished up another bag last night that I like a lot! So much so that I think it’s magnetic clasp worthy. Must make a trip to the fabric store today to pick one up.

A new discovery in the current Country Living magazine… FunQuilts A quilting studio that makes modern design quilts and that is located right here in Oak Park! Right in my own backyard! They write books and design fabric and even have classes. I’d love to take a class there. Then maybe I could make this!

    Oh, I am so jealous that they are in your town! I saw that page in Country Living too, and it stopped me in my tracks. What a cool, funky quilt. You’ll have to let us know if you take a class! 🙂
    I love your new purse too. It looks like a perfect one for fall – I bet it will look great with sweaters or a wool pea coat!

    Such a cute litte purse. I wish I had the time to make things. I want to make a new purse, but finding the right fabric can be so hard.
    And I want to make a quilt like that too, but I know that I will never get that done.

    I love your purse! I was anxious to see what you would do with the fabric, buttons and embroidery thread that you posted a few days ago – it is such a beautiful combination. And wool felt, sigh. You inspired me to pick some up yesterday. Not quite sure yet what to make…
