...Thrift Shop Purse Revamp

I was out and about opp shopping recently and came across this purse for $1. Pretty cool. It's an old Sportsgirl clutch and it's in my favorite colour! Score!


A few weeks ago I made some show flowers-you can see the tutorial here- and I decided that perhaps a similar addition would be nice on this purse!

Fabric Scraps
A button
Needle and thread
Scissors
An old purse

I collected my fabric scraps in a range of different colours that complimented the purse
 I found a circle shape that would be a good size for my biggest circle. This Dulux paint sample tin did the trick!

 I then cut graduating circles out of my fabrics and put them in place

Before sewing your button on, pop a couple of stitches through your flower, just to hold the 'petals' in place, then sew on your button!
You could glue your button flower on, or sew it, like I did. I figured it's be fastened better this way
Here it is! SO easy!
