Needle Weaving a Purse Flap

Trying to get a jump on some fall projects, I wove some scrap yarns on a wooden frame.  Then fused interfacing to the back to help it hold together. 
I added fabric and piping to make this purse flap.  It has a magnetic closing under the flap.  Pretty interesting, but I thought it needed something else.
So I added a few buttons from my collection.  The bottom two are hand made (bird is plastic, right hand one is ceramic).  The top button is an extra that came with a sweater.
