Flowers for All

I love buttons.  I mean, I LOVE BUTTONS!  When my grandmother Lois passed away, I inherited a delightful collection of vintage buttons.  For years, I've been pulling them out, staring at them, and putting them away.  I just couldn't part with them.  Then, one day, the light bulb when off! 


These would be the perfect gift for the Aunties!  Each auntie recieved a beautiful fabric flower, with one of Grandma's vintage buttons in the center.  It seemed so fitting, as Grandma and Grandpa owned a flower shop for years.  Love it!

Check out Little Birdie's site for a bouquet of fabric flower tutorials!

Happy Crafting!


  1. What a memorable and special gift! I absolutely LOVE the flowers!

  2. Just unwrapped mine! Thanks for sharing the heirloom buttons with us. My friend Amy makes dog collars and fabric flowers for the collars - they're totally charming: Bow Wow Couture

  3. Oh! In case you need even more flower ideas to make a mixed bouquet, I just remembered these favorite flowers from Made With Love by Hannah: Ric Rac Dahlias.
