Got a box or jar full of buttons carefully saved by your mother or grandmother? For 2015 I’m in search of great ways to put those buttons to use. Here is this week’s idea:
I think this is a lovely way to use a bunch of buttons from your stash. I tried to find the original source of the photo but failed. I really like the simple square quilting and how it sets up the even spacing for the buttons creating a pattern yet letting each button stand on its own merits too. This would make a great gift for any woman in your family, from a grandmother to a young adult. Especially if paired with some stories and a photo of the person whose buttons were used in the creation of the tote bag.
It would be a good idea to document where the buttons for your project came from and any relevant stories or information about that person or family. If you are looking for more button crafts, check out my Pinterest board.
