Buttons

My (poorly supplied) sewing kit.

I wanted to sew a button back on a shirt, and also find a button to sew onto the shirt. Unfortunately I left most of my sewing stuff at my parent's place, so I had to abandon that task. But I did find some interesting buttons from when I started collecting them when I was younger.


Brightly colored sea creatures: a dolphin, sea horse, octopus, and two fish. Or is one of those fish a shark?


The cast from "the cow jumped over the moon" rhyme. A fiddle playing cat, a jumping cow (with a party hat), a moon in a nighty top, a spoon with a dish, and a laughing dog wearing a party hat.


Just one lone button, a lady bug made from wood. The antena are metal with something black on their tips.


This isn't a button, but I wanted to share it. It's a patch that says "I smile because I have no idea what's going on." That was sort of my motto when I was younger.

And I thought I had a nice collection of buttons (well, not so nice any more since I gave the teddy bears and ducks and things to my Mam when she was making baby things for someone, and used the space ones for a 4x4 in a craft challenge recently, but still). Your collection makes mine seem pitiful!

Actually this is a pretty small collection. Only 11 buttons plus one patch.
