Do any of you also collect buttons?
(DO bears you know what in the woods LOL)
wouldnt it be fun to have a little button exchange
and make a mini wallhanging using them?
oh I think I have an idea coming on LOL
this container is about 8x8 and 6 inches deep
these are just one tenth of what I have
I inherited my Moms buttons, my Grams buttons, my hubs moms
buttons and his Grams buttons too
not to mention my own
but I love them
love looking through some of the old ones
that I remember where they came from
this wood button came from a coat
my Mom had-
a toggle button
the marbly one next to it on the right was
from when I worked at the curtain
factory and because the boss knew I sewed
he GAVE me a ton of these buttons
they were gonna have to pay to trash them
oh yeah -he liked me because I got 45 dollar a yard
material and thread and buttons.......I was in HEAVEN
this little clover one is cute not sure where it came from
you can see it better here.,
see those red ones all strung?
those were probably from hubs Mom or Gram
such a variety
and all fun to look at
how cool are these metal ones?
they dont make nice buttons like these anymore
time to make something fun with them
don't you think?
out of this button box I have given some to my brother
and some to my niece for stuffed animal eyes
and I have used some too
but I dont sew clothing much anymore
so need to find a cute
little project to use them in
would any of you be interested in a
button exchange and we could then
take the buttons and make a little
mini sampler quilt for our sewing rooms?
OR we could make a simple autograph
block with our name on it
and the button from our stash
and exchange them
I know. I am bad and have enough
sewing to do but how fun
to look at that little quilt and
be reminded of your quilty friends!
