Buttons for Zakka

Is there anything better than rooting through a button tin to find the perfect button?  Ok, yes, eating cake is possibly on par - but the satisfaction of finding THE PERFECT button is really, really, really, and I mean REALLY good.  Ohh and the noise the buttons make when you shove them around the tin and pick through them and toss them back in, rejected this time.  Hmmmm...buttons. 

Happy Sunday everyone :)


Advance preparation for Zakka Style Sew-Along.  Lace deficit = possible button improv.

I miss my button tin...I left it back in Canada when I moved...;o( I've had to start a new collection. BTW have you seen this video about dyeing buttons...http://video.answers.com/how-to-upcycle-fashions-with-dyed-buttons-427056424 just think of the possibilities!

I left mine in Canada too but as you can see managed to start again [mostly from boot sales]. I miss good ol'fashioned garage sales. Anyways, just watched the video - interesting. Can we get that dye here?

A student at my patchwork class gave me her mother's button box. Original vintage. This would make a nice swap project for London.

I don't have a button tin either, but I also think I need one now..... especially in view of the haberdashery swap next month!
