SEW & TELL: Vintage Button Crush


I have an ongoing love affair with vintage buttons. There’s something about an old box or jar filled with buttons that’s like a time capsule. Little threads hanging off a discarded shirt button, an oversized coat button, evening wear rhinestone buttons all meant to be used again.  Over the years, I’ve shared quite a few projects using buttons from my collection. I hope you enjoy this trip through my archives as much as I did.

CELEBRATIONS: Vintage Button Heart

Vintage Button Heart via homework | carolynshomework.com

I had this idea to use up some of my vintage buttons and create a little heart on an embroidery hoop. I naively thought that I had come up with some sort of original idea to create a little heart. Ha – I checked Pinterest and I discovered there are entire boards dedicated to button hearts on embroidery hoops. There are even hearts using red thread which again I thought would be original. Oh well, I decided to go ahead and create the little project that I had visualized even if it’s been done many, many times.
