Hi everyone!
I'm looking for llllarrrrge heart shaped buttons in any colours in Australia (preferrably Melbourne)
or anyplace that I can order online from

like the ones used in teh "tricks are for cats" collection on goldieclothing.com
see - hoodie, chophop skirt, bustier, or shakeheartbreak skirt

I've looked in lincraft and spotlight but they only seem to have small ones and i'm holding out to buy like semi-oversized ones :-D

let me know if you've seen any around!

I haven't seen any aroungd but maybe you could make some out of sculpting clay? Spotlight has that in an immense range of colours.

I scored some from Spotlight a few months back. They're pink. Were just in the button section. They are quite large too.
Maybe try a beadshop or those little craft stores that sell different items.

Even try somewhere like Big W or Crazy Clarks - I'm sure I saw big white hearts at Big W last week, but I went with frogs instead. Cheesy

If you have no luck with the Melbourne suggestions here, I'd keep an eye on ebay. You often get large lots of really cool buttons, and the low postage costs make them quite cheap.

But the button store to end all button stores is just around the corner from where I live. Pity it's in Sydney but if you email your requirements they might be able to send you what you're looking for. They have a website: http://www.allbuttons.com.au/

Happy heart hunting Wink

I make buttons out of polymer clay. I could make any size hearts or whatever.
Contact me if you still need them. My site is http://www.emeraldearth.com
