R is for

Really sick of sewing on buttons.

IMG_1468

Ok maybe not, but there was a lot of button sewing involved.  I made this for a gift last week, and now I want to start making one for myself.  Except I think I’ll put mine in a chunky white (or black?) frame.   I got the idea here.   This one measures 10 x 10 and is made to hang, or stand up on its own. 

Pin It!

GREAT IDEA!
I have tons of buttons that I inherited from my precious grandmother, this would be a great project to incorporate her buttons into!

Thanks for sharing!

Keriann said...

Wow! Props to you! I could never have the patience to sew on that many buttons in one project!

Katie B. said...

anne said...

Fun! Bookmarking this for a project to do when my button collection gets as out-of-control as my fabric collection!

Lise said...

Oh, my gosh, this is beautiful! I have heaps of white buttons, more than I could ever use on clothing. You just gave me an idea for my nieces' Christmas gifts!

Beautiful! I hate sewing buttons on. i'm thinking this would be a fine project for the ol' hot glue gun, no?

I know how you feel. One year I had to sew 200 buttons onto a Christmas wallhanging. But your project is worth it. It is beautiful and something that can be seen and treasured all year round. I'm off to look at that tutorial and maybe make one myself. Yours is beautiful.

Yeah, I'd be sick of sewing on buttons too and I'd probably have taken the lazy way out and used a glue gun! :)

What a cool idea. I've been wanting to make something with my initial "S" to decorate my studio, and this could be just the thing. Off to look through my button jars...

Breathtaking - I'm a girl with a thing for buttons and monochromatic colour schemes.

Just wanted to let you know I made four of these for Christmas presents this year and LOVE how they came out. You can see them here (I linked back to your blog.)

My friend made a button wall hanging and used a long thread and did a couple of loops through each button and only tied off when she ran out of thread. So much faster that knotting each one individually. Is this made the same way?
