|Purse feet are not sold in my city, and since I didn't want to wait for a shipment from the Internet, I had the idea to use oversized thick buttons instead of buying expensive purse feet. They are easier to install than purse feet, since you only need to sew them on using your machine's button stitch.
While making another purse, I had another brain flash. Shank buttons would probably work even better than sew-on ones. You would just have to poke a hole for the loop on the bottom and put a pin through the loop to hold it, such as a piece of a toothpick. If you're lucky, the shank buttons come on a card with the plastic pin in the back to hold it on the card. Drop a bit of glue on the pin and shank loop to hold it in place!
