I love buttons. There is something satisfying about riffling through a tin of buttons. It’s like choosing your favourite sweets with less calories.
As you can imagine I have a lot of buttons. some are standard shirt buttons, some are fancy wooden ones with writing or shapes. Extra large or tiny I have them.
The question is, What do i do with them? Well apart for look at them and collect more, there is a range of things to do with a button.
- Functional – holding things together like shirt openings
- card making
- covering up a mistakes when sewing – whoops
The list is endless.
I know crafter’s who put a button on everything they make, and on the other hand there are a group of people who can not touch a button, and therefore wear clothes with zips or no fastenings.
Buttons to are magical.
