What would you do with these?



Hi Everyone. I am also a new floozie. I have been following for a while and am loving all of the button creations, button organisation and button finds that have been posted about. I must admit that I am quite new to button loving as well so I don't have a huge collection of buttons except the spares that come with my new clothes that I have been collecting for years.

I started making fabric covered buttons for the accessories that I could make them into but I'm now really enjoying just the buttons for themselves. I send buttons all over the world and I often wonder what happens to them. It doesn't always feel right to ask.


A friend of mine attached some aeroplanes and helicopters to her son's kindergarten hat so he knew it was his amongst all the other matching ones. One of my customers said her husband wanted my green robot buttons on a shirt, and another order was going to be made into accessories such as key chains and things. The ones at the bottom were going onto a green coat.



I'm curious...what would you do with buttons like these?

These are beautiful!! I would attach to a white sweater, a tiny shoulder bag, or a couple of mittens. Thanks for sharing these with us!!

I love the ones covered in the Strawberry fabric. I have no idea what to do with them. I would prob stick them in a jar. lol But I still think that they are beautiful. I haven't seen any button on your blog that I haven't liked! Have a Great Day!

They are wonderful. I'm sitting here drooling over them as they would be wonderful additions to my art supplies. I am an assemblage artist. Keep on creating.

Thanks everyone for your lovely comments. Some good ideas there. Oh if only I had more time (as we all say I'm sure) :)

These are so pretty! :) I love the rockets and helicopter set of buttons. I would use them in a themed scrapbook as my passion is scrapbooking. I have yet to get my hands on some fabric buttons though! These are too cute!

I love to put covered buttons on the button covers so you can pop them on say... a denim shirt & make a snazzy jacket.

I just love to admire them, I love the butterflies and the rockets, a great post!

I love the little kid buttons...I think I'd back them with some kind of fabulous paper (sassafras most likely) and then frame them and hang them on my scrapbook room wall for inspiration! Color (and buttons) SO inspire me!

This is great. Keep the ideas coming. I'm inspired. Love hearing how they would fit into other people's art and crafts - and all so varied.

Those with strawberries will be great on a white spring dress for a little girl.

I love buttons and at the moment, waiting for inspiration, I am cataloging and attaching them on cardboard. And chasing around for some vintage or just pretty buttons, of course!

The last set of buttons spoke to me the most! I would make a button/ribbon necklace. I have the tutorial on my blog (spt2.blogspot.com) for making one.
Your photos are lovely!

I'd put them on drawer pulls so they would always be out and seen. So cute...
