People have been covering buttons to match or coordinate with the fabrics on their outfits since the beginning of the last century, often using a wooden or celluloid "blank" as the base. Today, you can buy kits in the notions section of many fabric stores to make your own fabric-covered buttons. Serious button collectors should be aware that thrifty seamstresses in the last century often re-used old buttons by covering them with fabric; therefore, before discarding that tattered wool button, try removing the wool to see what could be underneath!
