Button madness!

Inspired by an earlier post about the lovely Etsy shop Fluffington, I have been collecting covered buttons. You can buy buttons already covered (sometimes in vintage fabrics from ebay or charity shops) or you can cover them yourself in any fabric you like and they can be embellished too. They are bit fiddly to embroider but look lovely on a cardi, as a brooch or they can be added to cards and embroidered pictures.

Oooh la la! I like the man with the moustache! You've just reminded me I need to buy some buttons to add to the sleeves of a black polo-neck jumper. I want to jazz it up a bit! x

Fab! A bit of jazzing up, always a good move. Sx
