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.
