I enjoyed a very pleasant Saturday afternoon recently playing with my buttons.
I know how to live, don't I?
I spent a great deal of time: running my fingers through my collection of buttons:
gasping with wonderment and awe at the cornucupia of colours and styles
and squealing with excitement when I came across ones I'd forgotten I had.
Mr J and P has just read what I've written and says that he's a little worried that people might think I'm stark raving bonkers. I told him that he shouldn't worry as my readers know exactly what I'm on about when it comes to buttons. We love our buttons don't we?
Anyway, before I come across as being completely insane, I didn't just spend all my time idly stroking my buttons. Not me. I actually managed to make something with them.
I found some thin stretchy elastic lurking in the sewing box and with the help of a tutorial from youtube (I used this one here ) I made button bracelets.
Bracelet number one:
Bracelet number two is quite possibly my favourite. Made with these larger and textured buttons, they look a little like flowers to my (delusional) mind:
Bracelet number three, in bright colours, for Little Miss J and P:
If you want a quick crafty fix that even a simpleton can muster, then I can assure you that button bracelets are the way forward.
Happy weekend everyone! xx
