Button Purse Feet

submitted by Andra M. Withers
from Threads #136

I like to make tote bags and purses, especially the pretty quilted ones. To protect the fabric on the bottom of the purse, I sew buttons as “feet.” This keeps the fabric clean longer and reduces wear and tear. I can also easily coordinate the feet to the fabric in the purse.

    Fabulous. When I buy purses I always look for feet. I was thinking it was a shame there were no feet when I made my own totebags. Silly Me. :-)
