I saw and was inspired by a button brooch featured on Button Floozies about a year ago. Can not find the post again but if you now it was you thank you for the inspiration and leave a comment here so everyone else knows who it was.
I added a small crochet flower as the base of my brooch and the large pink button is vintage. My Mum gave it to me years ago along with a box of other buttons.
The wire was the tricky bit but once it was all together it looked really good.
I am going to try some other colour combinations next.
Button Floozies is devoted to buttons and the women who love them. For many of us, button love began when played with our mothers' and grandmothers' button tins as children and has grown through the years. The Button Floozies blog is written by many contributors; they are listed below under the heading "Button Floozies". Whether you collect, or just admire, all things tiny and fabulous, join us as we show our treasures, and the things of beauty we create with buttons! -- Laurie email@example.com
