Buttons!

Denise R’s package of buttons weighed on my mind, it had to be something sewing related, and it had to be pretty!

This is what I came up with,

A sewing kit, with magnets on the back so that she can put it right on her fridge

flower magnets, with the buttons as the center – I was thinking of poppies when I did this but it would work with any color really

and some swirly stacked buttons, these are really cool looking but don’t photograph as well as I would like

I liked making these so much I put some up on my Etsy shop, you can see it here

These have vintage shell button centers and I decided to just go ahead and make some regular button one’s too

and the buttons you get will be mine, I’m sending Denise back what’s left šŸ™‚ Ā I have my own little hoard of buttons I am looking forward to purging!

  4. Great ideas a person after my own heart. I recycle everything. Have done for years pity I did not photo or remember what I have done. My moto is everything can have a new life. From the other side of the world but have a lot in common. Just started website my 21yr old granddaughter set it up for me. Life can begin at 61yrs. Have a look you may get some ideas from my site. Always adding more. keep in touch Jean.
