  made from a packed of a thousand mother of pearl ones that i got for $5 or something...but they're a little bland since they're all shades of white.  i thought the red perked it up a little bit.  the tourquoise ones with the lime green thread are fetching too, don't you think?

Plastic buttons will dye---you can use rit or Tintex. Sometimes the plastic will absorb the dye at different rates and you will get lovely striated or mottled effects. Thrift stores are a good place to buy buttons cheap--they sometimes bag gavillions of them to get rid of them fast and cheap.
Mother of pearl buttons can be dyes also.
I love the idea!

I;m confused when you say "go to the next hole", because I dont see the string crossing over the buttons in the picture. After you wrap the thread twice around the connecting thread, you just go to the opposite hole on that same button?

Yeah, basically. You sew the two two neighbouring buttons together (sew through them a couple of times and then wrap the thread around these connecting threads) and then you do one of two things:



If you're making your first row of buttons, you 1) attach the first two buttons; 2) wrap around the thread; 3) move to the opposite hole on the second button, and then 4) attach the third button and 5) wrap around those threads.

If you're on your second or subsequent row, 1) you attach the button through its top hole to the bottom hole of the button above it, and 2) wrap the threads. 3) You move a quarter of the way around the circle, and 4) sew through the side hole to attach a new button, then 5) wrap the threads. 6) You move to the top hole on this new button, and 7) attach it to the button above it, then Cool wrap the threads. You would then move around to the next side hole, attach another button, and so on.

good lord, trufflegirl, you've really taken up the button cause!  Smiley
i've started on the bag, by the way, and i'm using almost 3/4 inch white pearly buttons and the thread is variagated blue embroidery floss, though it stretches too much and i'm having floppy freak out, i'm afraid.  i'll sublimate it.
cheers--

oh, and thanks for the compliment to my girl.  her name is anubis and she's the best cat i have ever known.
