bag decorated with mother of pearl buttons.

The Fendi  new baguette bag is covered with beads and sequins. When I saw the colored version I thought that it would be fun to make a DIY version of it using small colored buttons. You can look for shirt buttons in your stash or buy them in bulk on internet, they're pretty inexpensive.

La nuova baguette di Fendi è ricoperta di paillettes e perline. La versione colorata ci offre lo spunto per un divertente fai da te: perchè non decorare una borsetta con dei piccoli bottoni? I bottoni per camicie andranno benissimo, cercateli nela vostra scatola del cucito o comprateli in stock su internet li troverete a prezzi vantaggiosi.

Aren't the first two made out of big sequins? They'd look lovely with buttons too!

It's funny, I just made a button embellished bag and posted about it. I really should try it with smaller buttons in rainbow colors and covering the whole bag. Thanks for the idea!
