There were buttons of every size, shape and color inside. Some of them were still on the card but some of them were strung together like this:
I love that the previous sew-er took the time to match up like buttons and string them together. Really, it's a great idea and definite time saver. My current method of randomly searching through my jar of buttons may be replaced. What a fun project it would be to have Piper help me match like buttons.
There were so many great buttons in the tin, I took pictures of some of my favorites.
Like these adorable blue gingham ones (still in a bag marked $0.25):
Or these pretty purple glass buttons:
These funky square buttons are fun, aren't they?
(these were stashed in an old bank envelope <3)
I love these green ones:
I can't wait to find the perfect project for these teal buttons:
I could continue to show you a lot more fun buttons but I will resist. My point is this. Buttons are fun. Buttons are a great way to add some interest to a garment. I <3 buttons!
