I love covering buttons, there is just something about it that is relaxing to me and it's fun to pick just the right fabrics
I sell them in my booth at Orange Tree, but the only way it is profitable for resale is when I find buttons to cover at estate and thrift stores. I can often pick up a whole bag full for .25 to $1.00.......
.....Then the only investment is sweat equity
I find it best to use fabric with small patterns, vintage pillow case material is perfect and fabric scraps
I used a frame from Graphics Fairy, wrote "Buttons" and printed it out on card stock
An easier way to display them is on a playing card, I showed HERE how I made this picture frame backing board
I am going to display this new batch in a little vintage drawer
Just throwing this idea out there for my friends that sell online or have retail space. I price them at $4.50 a card and they always sell out
They are just a nice little addition to my booth....
....Keep your eyes open at estate sales and thrift stores for buttons to cover and save those little fabric scraps.......See.... We knew there was a reason we were saving those little pieces of vintage fabric!
