The button makes or breaks a tote in my opinion. Kimmie Cornerstone makes these gorgeous, artsy buttons by breaking up sheep and goat horns by smashing them with hammers or cutting them with a band saw. She sands the edges then drills holes. The natural intrinsic beauty of the horn speaks for itself. I love fashioning my own buttons with Femo or Sculpey clay, but these horn buttons are the cat's meow. I was blown away when Kim brought me a bag of extra large horn buttons for my Bundaflicka totes. I've already sewn four of them on new totes.
