  114. My name is Kylie, and I have to be honest. I really dislike sewing, but I use old vintage buttons in my crochet projects. I put them on hats, in flowers I make for decoration, and wherever they will look cute. My sister just bought a ton of old buttons, and I am so fascniated by the vintage ones. I always wonder about who wore them before.

    I will post about your buttons to my blog. It may even interest my sister enough to stop by. I'll even follow along if it helps my chances of getting those buttons! Thanks. :)

    ReplyDelete
  115. There are a lot of fun things one can do with all those buttons! I am new to sewing and have only done a couple small projects, but I am hoping this summer will change that.
    My summer projects include a patchwork duvet cover for my cousin, and a sun dress and the spring ruffle shirt from the sew, mama, sew tutorial. Maybe I can use some of these cool buttons on the duvet cover!

  137. Oh I knew if i looked long and hard enough I would find someone giving away buttons. I love buttons. My kids love buttons. We spend lots of time playing with buttons, looking at buttons, carrying buttons around in our pockets (well, mostly their pockets).

    I sew clothes for the kids, mostly. Sometimes I will make a little something else - placemats, napkins, chinese food boxes; anything that comes to mind.

    Thanks for the chance to win those luscious buttons.

    And I signed up to be a follower ;) but I'll add you to my reader, too.

Anyway, right now I am on a quilting kick -- just love the straight lines. I also do a fair amount of cardmaking, so those buttons would be great on some of my cards.

  152. Hi, Elaine from Seattle, WA. I love buttons! My favorite thing to sew right now are toys for my kids. But, I also have done just a little quilting, and I'm yearning to do it much more. I really enjoy hand-sewing projects, or where there are elements I can do while enjoying a good movie (but not too good, or it's too hard to get anything done).

    I'm Carmen from Clothesline patterns in Brisbane. Gotta admit I like sewing clothes best as I'm originally from tropical North Queensland and just thinking about quilts make me sweat!
