Textile button making can be quite addictive. More often than not, makers want to keep their first buttons as a record of their success. The printed fabric Little Button Journal© included with this kit allows you to do this, making up a sampler for future reference. Printed with drawings and snippets of text about buttons and button making, it also serves as a ground for further creative journaling.
The buttons in this kit use traditional needlework techniques to create the surface decorations. These can be combined differently to create even more designs. Today, these buttons can be used to enhance not only textile projects such as clothing and home décor, but made into jewellery, as embellishments and so much more!
