Handbag Wednesday: Leather Wallet with Vintage Button





My very talented friend Juliet showed me this gorgeous wallet she made out of leather, featuring a vintage gold, white and orange button that once belonged on a sweater of her mother's. The minute she showed it to me--in a casual Did-you-see-the-wallet-I-made? way--I knew I wanted it to be the subject of this week's handbag post.

I love the combination of making something new and incorporating something not only vintage but personal into the design. If Juliet decides to produce a small batch of these, I will be the first in line to buy!

Hi Marina! It's so funny, since your post on vintage buttons, which I really loved, I've been seeing vintage buttons everywhere, including this wallet.

Oh, I love it! Wallets have to be in red. As red stands for the prosperity :)
Only down point - there's no pocket/department for coins :(

Hi V! I'm with you, I love it when someone I know can make something beautiful, I am so not craft-oriented myself. I like the idea of it, but not the reality.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I will return to G&G soon!

Hi Ginta! I need to get a red wallet in my life soon if red = prosperity.
