Handbag Detail

Handbag Detail
I wanted to include a very large antique button in with Rachel's belongings. This very ornate button came off my great grandmother's wedding dress. It's metal, probably brass, and it has a raised design on it. The recessed areas are enameled in a deep blue.

The only way to include this button was to use it for an accessory. My design choice was to use it as the front design for a cross over the body style handbag. The straps are rolled felt, handstitched with navy blue pick stitches. The handbag has six pennies in it, dated 2007 to 2012, which mark the years since I last saw Nancy and Pascal.
