Fabric covered buttons:


Here are fabric-covered buttons. Think of all the possibilities! You could mix and match and do most anything with these buttons.

A colorful button necklace:


I very rarely wear jewelry, but I think this necklace is a show stopper! I would definitely wear this one. It has a slight bohemian vibe to it.

What makes this necklace so special are the buttons added to buttons. It is such a decorative way to make a piece of jewelry look truly unique.

This would be a sweet gift to make for a friend or family member who loves colorful jewelry.
