Button, button, who makes buttons!?!

I have buttons... Oh boy do I have buttons!!! Three containers full!!! My buttons, my mom's buttons, inherited my gram's and my m-i-l's buttons, so yes, I have buttons!!! Tons of buttons! Lots of very old buttons...

Sometimes though, you want a couple of those specialty buttons, maybe even just one button, and they are sooooo expensive. Our Wonky Bits group yesterday just happened to be talking about this and thought we would like learn how to make them one day!!!

Well.... I was visiting Em's blog and was so excited to see a link in today's post to a button making tutorial she made back in August 2008!!!! It was meant to be after yesterday's group convo!!! Yippee!!! We shall have to try this!!!

Thanks so much for the coincidental link/post Em!!! 8-)

Happy stitchings all!

Just heard - Blogging friend Pat's 5 year old granddaughter is very ill with a 105 fever.... Please send up a prayer or few for the wee one and Pat's family at this time... God bless you all Pat!

I have lots of buttons too but not many old or interesting ones. I used to bring them to school for sorting in primary math. The kids loved that.

I'd like to dig through your buttons. I gave away an old wood box full of buttons my mother had for years to an old man who collected buttons. Wish I had them. Especially after I found out he didn't care if the buttons were old or new. He just glued them onto things.

How about your button tins? ... the top tin is very interesting.
