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.
