I admit I love buttons. I think they are my most favorite crafting supply. My love for them began when my daughter was in kindergarten, she is now in college. Her teacher sent her home with a box of buttons. She was to spend the week sorting and counting them. I had so much fun that week sorting and admiring that I started collecting them.
My collection is now big. I asked my mom at one point to ask my grandmother and aunts if they had any. I got lots of vintage ones that way. Others I have taken off of clothes or found at thrift stores.
The brightly colored ones I bought at the craft store. I keep them separate so they are easy to find.
I use them on the bears.
Here a button
Someone gave me these button flowers I just love these. They are just twisted on wire. So bright and colorful.
There a button
But my favorite is button bracelets. These are just sewed randomly onto black elastic. The top one has some beads added. I can not tell you how many strangers have stopped me and told me how much they like them.
Everywhere a button.
Who else? I know I can not be alone here.
