Button Heart Picture (or bird or butterfly)
Buttons look great sewn together in a picture. You can mix up the colours, shapes and sizes or stick to one colour alone. Embroider a name or a mesaage below for a special valentine pressie – you could even cut the buttons off one of your loved ones’s old shirts – not his favourite of course – but something destined for the charity shop.
They also make great wedding gifts and new baby presents too. You son’t need as many buttons as you think – about 60 or 70. Rummage through your local charity shop – and get into the habit of cutting buttons off any clothes deemed unfit for chairty and headed for the recycler. Buttonbag sells a small selection of buttons by weight too in themed colours.
