I have these fabric buttons I call them in my big jars of mother of pearls buttons not knowing what else to do with them,
They are handmade I do believe and beautiful. I bet they were the closure for a beautiful evening jacket worn over a beautiful tulle and satin evening gown back in the glamorous days of the 1930-1950's?
Just day dreaming .
Do you know anything about buttons like these? please tell
I just finished a few more birds in the series of American song birds put out on advertising cards by Singer Sewing Machines around the turn of the century. There were 14 birds in the series and I have gradually worked through them. I have the entire collection of cards of the Singer series and plan to use them in a needlework project.
All buttons are hand painted by me and there are no transfers. They are meant for decorative or collective purposes and are not washable.. Each finished button received several coats of an acyrilic sealer to protect them. You can see more of my buttons on my Etsy site... https://www.etsy.com/shop/olderrose
I was digging through a glass covered dish full of buttons I bought at an estate sale couple years ago and still spotting buttons I didn't know was in this dish. I had never noticed the button with the eagle on it
I bought the box of buttons for all the buttons with stones on them and a few rhinestone buttons. Love the large metal button with the black stone. It's about size of a silver half dollar
There is some fabulous silver metal buttons also I need to figure out how to make a bracelet out of these
I have been playing in a small cabinet filled with some of my old precious rhinestone buttons and other small treasures, thought I'd just show a peak. It's a cloudy day again here and I didn't use a flash

I am currently teaching a new RECYCLED Mixed Media Art Class. The students range in age 6 to 12 years old. In this class the students create ART with all found objects, materials, papers, and more. Here are a few works where the students used some found BUTTONS in their ARTWORK.
A friend asked me to make a button bookmark for her to give her mom for Mother's Day. I was glad she did because it made me get back in the bookmark making mode.
It also made me realize that people might have special buttons from family members but don't know what to do with them. So I put up two Etsy listings--one for the Mother bookmark using my button and one for a button bookmark made with buttons sent in by the customer. They can also choose the word they want--REMEMBER, NANA, SISSY, EXPLORE, CHERISH....
I like how the buttons look dangling out of the book:

This year the button SALE portion of the event is free and open to the public -- what a bonus! You won't find a more varied selection of buttons anywhere on the planet than you will at any button show sale! Here are some photos of beauties I've purchased at their shows in past years:
Button Floozies is devoted to buttons and the women who love them. For many of us, button love began when played with our mothers' and grandmothers' button tins as children and has grown through the years.

Whether you collect, or just admire, all things tiny and fabulous, join us as we show our treasures, and the things of beauty we create with buttons! -- Laurie firstname.lastname@example.org
