One of the best things about quilting and of course sewing in general is the ability to create!
A little secret I have is that I love buttons.
I think it’s because they are much like us…
They are unique.
They come in all shapes and sizes.
They can be reused and recycled.
They have great stories and memories to go along with each one.
I have drawers upon drawers and jars upon jars of buttons (these are just a few).
The great thing about these great little embellishments is that they add to and enhance any project.
Buttons are great because they can be used as a set, alone or in groups. A single lone button can make your project pop! Never discard a button – you never know when you’ll need it.
Here is a great example of how I used buttons to make an already stunning wool and multi-patterned fabric purse FaBuLoUs!
One of the other benefits of using buttons is the added depth and texture it brings to any project. You can see the way these buttons enhance the images and fabrics of my purse.
I so enjoyed making this purse and I love how it turned out. It’s one of my most cherished projects. Using embellishments can spice up and project – give it a try and tell me what worked for you!
