Button bags

My latest crop of bags - this time decorated with buttons.

I have a lovely collection of buttons, passed on by lots of lovely people.  Many are, I am sure, antique.  On one of my Pinterest boards I have a collection of button decoration ideas, many of which I hope to incorporate into my bags at some future point in time....

These are quite intricately pieced, but by doing five at once (I will post the fifth in a future post) I managed to speed up the construction process.  Having said that, the cutting was quite tedious!
Three of these bags have zips - I have been asked at a number of stalls whether I have zipped bags, so one project this year is to increase the number of bags I produce with zips.  I simply added the zip to the top, but for future bags I think I will add borders to the zips as I have been doing  on projects since this one.  It gives a neater finish.  However, this is adequate and will hopefully suit some future purchasers.
