I really do love button's. I don't always work with them but I have a little collection. Button's remind me of my childhood, anyone else remember the good old button box your Nanna had? I remember the old tin they were kept in and and loved playing and sorting them. Ruby now does this with mine, she gets into my old button's we found in my Nanna's old stuff that were packed away for years. I rescued them and I love using them to the clothes I make for Ruby to remind me of her.
Anyway, in my nesting I decided to clear my fridge and redo all the photo's. I bought some plain magnets and went through the button's and sewed and glued them to the magnets.
My little collection
My favourite ones from my Nanna, and some old ones I have collected from op-shops.
I began sorting them into jars, then gave up and keep the rest in a big jar.
Here are my new button magnets. I think they are a bit cute and Ruby loves them even more, she was fascinated with them and had fun putting them on the fridge for me.
I love them so much, I think I might make some more. A pretty cheap and easy little project.
