A new addition to my button addiction !!!!


My lovely friend was out shopping the other day and spotted these button covering kits . Knowing my addiction to buttons she bought me a couple of packets . My friend who doesn't sew or even blog (what the heck is wrong with some people?) just knew I would like them . I haven't covered buttons for a long time and now I can't stop thinking of all the things that NEED a covered button or two . What do you use them for ?

Well that looks like fun. Must get some for the next batch of bags. Where else would I use them on the dolls clothes or just to decorate a doll or other softie. Enjoy

A button added here or there can make the world of difference to an item.
It just makes it Pop!

Lovely Clare, i actually used them on those one hour bags, they look great. Marg

Barb said...

How fun!!! I use them on my totes and make a cloth hook and it wraps around the button. If you would like some antique buttons (all browns), just send me your address and I will send a few to you. If you want to know what they look like, go to www.bejeweledquilts.blogspot.com and look on that camera bag I made. I am so mad, I forgot what they are made of....

I have a hundred of those buttons, all sizes. Never thought to use them except for doll joints. Yours are very pretty! Nice friend you have.

Now she is one special friend...great choice of fabrics Clare to cover them in..

Ondrea said...

I have no idea how to use those, infact I have never seen them before. I don't think I should try them because I already have an addiction! Show us what you use them for please.

Linda said...

Those are lovely cutesy buttons! I love using buttons as accents for softies/dolls, coin purse enclosures, on embroidery work, and wooden crafts!
