Spring Fever

Spring fever, flower fun with buttons!!! Easy and fun to make, scap fabric and a button or two.


They sometimes are called burned flowers because you hold the edges after you cut the circle near a candle to curl the edges, different fabrics do different things! Sew buttons in the middle!

For more ideas and info on how to make them go to this blog!!

The one above was made out of an old chiffon printed scarf.
I read on another blog where she uses any leftover fabric she has.
Just be careful with the flame from the candle.











I made these into pins, but you can do so many things with them, add to a necklace, decorate something in your home, Easter baskets! Headbands!!

I've been a button collector for about 30 years..Sold off some at one time but still have tons, jars full, collection of round glass jars with lid on bottom with all kind of wood, shell, tiny shell and some real collectible and others.. so I can certainly relate to your blog posts..
