Wow, third button post in two days – I certainly love buttons 🙂
Recently, I got some really awesome retro ones from the boyfriend’s grandma. They were so pretty that I had to take pictures of them:
I especially love these. The black/white would be great on a b/w dress.
Cute for shorts or a white/dark blue blouse.
Definitely my favorites! They are quite heavyweighted, but the anchors are just adorable.
I’ve so many of these leather buttons but I am still searching for a project idea. Any ideas?
For a detachable collar or necklace?
When I went through my button collection on the weekend, one of the things that annoyed me was that I so often don’t use pretty buttons for my crafting or sewing projects just because I didn’t know I would have had enough matching ones.
I really love plastic containers with many different small compartments for sorting and storing stuff, but I have way too many buttons for that. And there are only 2-3 matching buttons for the most part, it’s not really a space-saver. (For buttons I stick to my old metal cookie boxes)
We are starting this week with buttons! Why? – Because everyone love buttons! (If you don’t, please leave a comment saying why!)
I will share some more crafty button ideas later on, but let’s start with refashioning some clothes (because that’s what we love as well!).
What we don’t like at all? Spending loads of money shopping just to see her with the same shirt or dress a day later.
Adding some – fun – cute – nifty – buttons to your clothes makes them unique in only a few minutes. And you don’t need to be a seamstress to add some spice to your style. Just needle and thread – and buttons.
