    Another one day project to send away to my cousin in Mauritius I debating whether to use a button, Velcro, or some other gadget for the little flap. :)

    Personally, I like a snap on my purse. I hate fiddling with a button. No velcro! lol. That teaaaring sound (from Seinfeld).

    I personally put the magnetic snaps in all of mine. But you could do that and then sew any kind of button on the flap for show too. :)

    Oh that's perfect! If you do ever want a magnetic snap, I've found that at Joann's but not in the snap section. They're in the section with handbag parts. In ours it's back near the yarn.
