I was rearranging and cleaning out my sewing room last week. (AKA the “playroom,” but let’s be honest—I’m the one playing up there the most!) I found this handful of buttons, each in it’s tiny ziploc bag. Do you recognize what they are?
You’re right if you guessed that they’re from clothes I’ve bought over the last couple of years. Clothes used to have a spare button or two sewn into them somewhere, often into the hem or the side seam. Now they just come dangling in their little ziploc with the tags. I dutifully take them off and set them aside for that moment when I need a new button…and as you can see, rarely use them.
So what do you do with yours? Do you keep them and end up using them? Throw them away?? Make button crafts???
