I’ve been making a pile of tiny covered buttons lately.
I have a very hard time parting with even the smallest scraps of fabric. Of course, that means I have a seriously out-of-hand collection of scrap fabric. I’ve starting turning some of it into these tiny buttons, which will ultimately become push pins.
I’ve also used bits of scrap fabric to make appliques. My pile is big enough, though, that I need to come up with some more good projects for scrap fabric. Any ideas?
Also, I’ve been loving this Pandora station lately, built around the Kate Nash’s song “Merry Happy.” You should check it out.

Lovely photo of the buttons there. Have you thought of covered snaps for your pieces? It could be with self fabric from a scrap or a coordinating scrap.
That’s a great idea, Joan! I don’t know why I hadn’t thought of it… I’m going to have to give it a try. 🙂
Love all those buttons and the ceramic tray! Have you thought of making them into magnets or using your scraps for a ticker tape quilt?
I’ve done magnets, although not with buttons this small. But the ticker tape quilt was new to me, and I had to look it up. It’s a great idea! I still have a pile of scraps, so I’m adding this one to my to do list. Thank you! 🙂
