I sort buttons first, according to size and then according to color and last of all according to type.
These are plastic grey shaded buttons which are perfect for creating button jewelry.
I teach how to make button jewelry and here is a crocheted button and bead necklace and bracelet on cotton thread with a chain extension to make them multi sized.
For those allergic to metal the button necklace can be closed with fabric ties.
I love adding fabric yoyos when creating a statement fabric necklace with fabric buttons.
A small art fabric hoop made with fabric buttons, yoyos and fabric ties. This will go on the wall in my sewing studio.
