Finishing someone else's project is indeed a fantastic way to build confidence and practice different sewing techniques. Adding buttons or a zipper can definitely elevate the design and add a personal touch. Here are some unique touches you could consider:

1. **Embroidered Details**: Adding small embroidered motifs or designs around the buttons or zipper can give the project a customized and intricate look.

2. **Contrasting Trim**: Use a contrasting fabric as trim around the edges of the project or along the zipper placket/button band for a pop of color and visual interest.

3. **Fabric Covered Buttons**: Instead of using regular buttons, cover them with the same fabric as the project for a seamless and coordinated finish.

4. **Decorative Stitching**: Experiment with different decorative stitches on your sewing machine to embellish the project, either around the edges or as a border for the buttons or zipper.

5. **Fabric Appliqué**: Cut out shapes or designs from leftover fabric scraps and appliqué them onto the project near the buttons or zipper for a playful and whimsical touch.

6. **Hand Stitched Accents**: Add hand-stitched details like French knots, cross-stitches, or running stitches around the buttons or zipper for a charming handmade look.

7. **Fabric Piping**: Create your own fabric piping using a complementary fabric and add it along the seams or edges of the project to create definition and texture.

These unique touches not only showcase your sewing skills but also make the finished project truly one-of-a-kind!
