a couple years ago when my mom and i were developing threads (our video sewing classes), our minds would often wander to the world and possibilities of fabric design…. we contemplated what it would take to develop a few fabric collections and shop them around hoping to get picked up by a big textile company?
seeing as how we didn’t have the time & money to invest or the connections, we decided to put our little dream on hold….. (sniffle)
until (that is!) just a couple weeks later when we stumbled upon SPOONFLOWER, and all our dreams came true. no really, it’s like disney land for the crafty designer type. we could design as we had the time and inspiration along side a talented community of indie designers. you can read more about them HERE…. amaze-balls.
needless to say, when they contacted us about featuring our hand warmer post, we were ecstatic. when they asked if we had any other fat-quarter projects to share we answered with a resounding, “cha, do we ever!” and quickly started designing the buttons you see pictured above.
we would love it if you stopped by the spoonflower blog to check out the button making tutorial and some project inspiration for the buttons you make.

if you are joining us from spoonflower, (WELCOME!!!) below is one more idea to use the fabric covered buttons…. simply add them to a boys shirt!
cute, right!? and perfect for adding some handmade charm to a store bought top! easter maybe? they’d be fun as cufflinks or a tie pin, too!
we’d love to know (in the comments below) what you think and how you would use your fabric covered buttons!
