Here are a few of my button creations. I removed the loops in the back with a pair of pliers and sanded the backs down so they wouldn't be uncomfortable and made some earrings and some necklaces. I thought these buttons were very unique Smiley I have tons left that I am still thinking of things to do with but they are more ordinary.

Pics are gone, sorry!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Thanks! I bought some tubes of random buttons at Hobby Lobby a while back. I found them by the check out counters for $1 a tube and bought like 3 of them Cheesy

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!
