Who Loves Buttons?!! (Button Give Away)


I love buttons, and I just adore vintage buttons. I have fond memories of sorting through the old button box when I was a kidlette. Not too long ago I participated in a button swap in the Button Addicts Group on Ravelry. I rounded up all the buttons I was willing to part with and my mum and I had a great time sorting them all into color groups and tucking them all into yummy packages of "Button Candy."


These are the buttons I contributed to the swap, the purple collection, Ooooo-Ahhhhh, buttons! I'd love to share some of my buttons, if you'd like a little collection for your own project, let me know in your comment if you have a color preference and if you have a favorite button project you've done, I'd love to hear about that too. I'll draw a name next Friday and some lucky button collector will have some yummy button candy to add to their collection!


This is one of my favorite button projects, my Silk Razzmatazz Necklace, you can find instructions here in one of my older blog posts if you are interested in making one for yourself.

Have a wonderful weekend! Blessings Friends!

  1. I love buttons too. This past Stitches West I worked for Black Water Abbey Yarns and was able to get a nice stash of their Irish themed buttons for pay. That was terrific!

  2. Ooooo, Ahhhh, I love buttons. My grandma was a seamstress and had the most amazing button jar. I remember spending hours playing with them. Fond memories indeed!

    Sadly I don't have any fiber/ button related item to share. Your necklace is lovely.

  5. Your necklace is fabulous! I just love buttons but I really don't seem to have any. Well, pretty ones that is. I have several of the regular functional kind. I have many fond memories of pawing through my Mom's button tin. I wonder if she still has it . . .

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  9. There's just something about buttons - you can run them through your fingers like pirate gold. This year, I found myself stashing them away like mad- you never know when a creative fit will hit -=

  10. I love buttons! I am always on the look out for interesting 'new' ones ... even so far as to buy clothes in a charity shop that have some to take off!

    I have made crochet button necklaces that turn out so cute.

    I would LOVE any thing purple!

  11. Oh, Melissa--What an awesome giveaway!! I don't have a color preference, but I would love buttons of a larger size, since I'm often looking for the 'perfect' button for my felted purses. :)
