Still trying to make a dent in my fabric stash.   And this year I inherited my grandmother's button collection.  There was only one solution...



Thanks for looking! Smiley

Adorable!  I just love them.  Are the trees and buttons glued to paper?

Sewing machine for the trees, and hand-stitching for the buttons.  I don't trust glue. Cheesy

How sweet!  Great fabrics for it too - I've got mostly plain fabric in my stash.  Nice work dink!

That's a great idea!  I bet you could also make ornaments out of some of those cute fabrics and buttons!  Happy holidays, all Smiley

Me, either!  I just couldn't see from the photo.  Sewing would really add a touch of quality to them.
