I made this little purse out of 2 old neckties. It's pretty small, but big enough to hold a cell phone, ID, lipstick, etc. (Just the most important things) The cool button is ceramic and I got it at a quilt show several years ago. The "strap" is a necklace that I opened up by cutting with pliers. I got it and several like it in a big bag of old jewelry in the quilter's boutique at last year's Green Country Quilters Guild Show.
