All you nice Craftster people always brighten my day, thank you!

Yarn or Fabric- jump aboard! I'm about to start my second tree- a winter one with white, silver and clear glass buttons. Stay tuned!

And pugwash- sewing buttons actually wasn't half as bad as I thought it was going to be, especially since the fabric was in the hoop when I sewed them on so it was nice and taut- very easy to work on. Give it a try! That's pretty awesome that we have some of the same buttons! I think most in my grandmas collection were from the early to mid 1900's.

I am definitely going to jump on board - definitely!  I think I am going to need a ton of green buttons for one that I have in mind... .I'll have to check Snobby Lobby to see if they have a pack of green buttons.... or maybe I should spend an afternoon sorting the buttons I have already lol.

The winter one sounds wonderful!

Wow!  This is a great idea.  I just inherited a sugar cookie tin of buttons myself Smiley  AND my mom's birthday is coming up.  Thank you for sharing this great idea!

What an amazing thing to inherit and what a lovely way of using them.  I'm sure your Mum must love it!
