Cant Go Wrong With Buttons

I heart buttons lots!  When my husband came home a few months back and said we were going to be receiving a box of 10,000 buttons I was ecstatic!!  (my only disappointment was they were already sorted into colour/size order!  I would have had HOURS of fun with that!)

Anyway, needless to say, a lot of my makes are embellished with buttons.  I just think they're so pretty!  Plus, I have nearly 10,000 of them to put to good use.

Here are a couple of my latest makes for an order that I had.  I couldnt resist including some buttons...

And for the same customer, one of the biggest letters I've made!

When the customer asked for red and white for this letter, I didnt want it to look "Christmassy" if you know what I mean?  I dont think this does though, I think it looks pretty and cute!

  4. Thanks so much for all your comments lovely people! I really appreciate you stopping by :)

    Country Rose - a friend of a friend of my husbands (if that makes sense) closed a knitting shop. The buttons were old stock and they were just going to throw them away!! Almost a crime in my book! Luckily this friend knew I loved crafty stuff so passed them on via my husband. Hope that explains x x

    Thanks again everyone x x
