I am always looking for purses for my collection. I am a purse fanatic.   I love really big purses.   On occasion, I will see a clutch and feels it fits into my style as a night-time purse.  I found this one at a local thrift shop, of course.   I decided to undress it a little.   Here is what I do.  Because the purse is patent leather, it does not photograph very well, so my pic’s did not turn out as expected.    Here is the purse  I found

A basic patent leather purse.   Vintage and retro.  I love it.


As you can see it has a little scuff marks near the top in two places.  Nothing I can handle

I decided to add an embellishment to adorn the purse.  I did not want it super dressy.

I found these buttons on a jacket that had a whole in and it was too big to cover.  So tossed the jacket and kept the buttons.  Came in handy.

I like the fact that the button are a little scuffed themselves

I keep darning needles all the time. I prefer to use them better than sewing needles

I used a darning needle and decided to use red thread as accent.   Here are the end results

I know it is a little dark

And my remote was in the shot. I was watching HGTV.

I just remembered to turn on the lamp

A much better picture

I know I have gotten a little lazy.  Pictures of my remote, yes I know.  Bad lighting.  But today I just wanted to get this out of me. I promise, it will be better the next time.  I thrive for perfection, well at least I will next time I post.  Bye ya’ll.

  1. The button really made the clutch look so elegant since the pattern of the button really matches the black background very well…thank you for sharing! Cheers~ 😀

    • I love working with buttons. I makes or breaks an outfit.

      • I remember when I was a little girl, I would always go through all those buttons that Lovable Mom has inside those drawers of her sewing machine…but working on buttons? Not really my forte…hehe…so envy that you’ve the talent in do so!
