Close up of the vintage German button……………my conscience would only let me buy one!
Price?? Dont ask!The most I’ve ever paid for ONE button is all I’ll admit to.
Will take a closer look tomorrow and see if I can do/wrap something similar. Posted by Picasa



  1. If you really want to get into wrapping buttons… there was an article in Threads magazine (issue #63, Feb/March 1996) and the author of that article, Nancy Nehring, published a gorgeous book – I borrowed it once from the embroidery guild library, but sadly, don’t own my own copy – called 50 Heirloom Buttons to Make. Published by Taunton; has quite a few 2nd hand copies… but you must be warned – it’s really really ADDICTIVE!!

  2. Maureen, buttons are totally addictive ….. lol this button is gorgeous, have not seen nothing like it before ….. wow!

  3. I was just reading your other posts ….you want wool roving??? Serious?? I have HUGE bags full of it … lol even silks .. will get Chris to hunt through shed for you and will send it. How much you want? I have alpaca and mohair too, and sheeps wool in lots of different colours. (natural of course)
