Do you have a huge stash of buttons too?
I have a huge stash of buttons that I've been collecting for years and years now. I just can't seem to throw away a garment or old piece of clothing without recovering the buttons to add even more to my stash.
We moved house a few months ago and it took a fair bit of effort to pack up my buttons. When I was unpacking, I came to the realization that it might be hard to use all these buttons unless I really put my mind to it. Since we paid to move them, I feel obligated to come up with a really good use for as many buttons as I can.
Obviously, most of our free sewing patterns use buttons, but it would take many, many projects to put a dent in my stash. So I decided to look around for some projects that purposely used a lot of buttons.
I was really surprised at how many sewing ideas with buttons I could find out there online. As I often do, I wanted to share the list of patterns and projects that I was able to find. Please enjoy and happy sewing!

Someone gave me a straw wreath just covered with buttons. Eventually some of the buttons fell off. I ended up removing all of them and added the buttons to my stash.
Great projects! I always enjoy seeing this blog in my inbox.
Not a sewing idea, but I was recently at a restaurant outside of Denver that had a room with lamp shades covered in buttons. It was a really pretty look.
Love the ideas…I may have to break out my button stash
