  1. I love the bridal buttons! :) And the bracelet too. It looks like a lot of work to make, but also very unique...

  2. I don't knit, but mismatched buttons is something that I have faced. Nice tips out here, Frederique.

    1. My wife is a knitter, and she will buy buttons for some of her projects, usually from an Etsy merchant.

    J'aime beaucoup les boutons et en ajoute parfois sur certains patchs.
    Je vais visiter les liens.

    Désolée, ma photo fait des caprices et ne s'affiche pas droite!!!!

  4. Every button creation here had me going ooh! nice.
    Your posts are lovely eye candy Frederique, thank you:)

  5. Such cuties! Love the button flower bouquet. Your blogs are delight to read. Thank you for posting these. :)

  6. Good Morning! I have got the button! Colorful photos and interesting links. Thank you for sharing and hosting ... :) Pat

  7. I'll never throw a button away again! What great ideas.

  8. The Button Calendar is very cute!
    Art work:

  9. That quilted calendar is adorable. I collect buttons and always enjoy button crafts and art. I also enjoyed reading your post in both French and English. Fun post. Glad I found you through the A to Z Challenge.

  10. Charming post. I'm definitely a button lover, and I often change the buttons on purchased clothing to ones that are less generic and more eclectic and suit my aesthetic. I've made a lot of jewelry over the years using buttons, and have a special love for moonglows and bakelite.

  11. J'adore votre idée. J'adore réutiliser des boutons. C'est la premiÚre fois que j'ai vu un blog en français dans ce défi et j'en suis trÚs contente.

  12. That calendar and felt flowers are adorable! I have a box of buttons that were my mother's and her mother-in-law's. I haven't looked through it in many years. Guess I ought!

  13. My grandmother kept a tin box filled with mis-matched buttons and I loved playing with those! Loved this post, and the wonderful examples of how to re-use buttons.

  14. Someone I know on Etsy has an antique buttons shop. She repurposes some of them into interesting jewelry and such.

  15. je les utilise aussi comme pions pour les jeux de société !

  16. The button calendar is so pretty. I love using buttons in my crafts. They are so versatile. Weekends In Maine

  17. Really brings whatever the item is into 3D. Lots of fun fabric button ideas.

  18. So creative! I'm tempted to try to make them for the bracelet. Thanks for visiting Buttercupland and Happy Easter!

  19. I especially like the calendar.

  20. What a delightful theme. And buttons..... it seems a long while since I aw a button. Sadly everyone these days has replaced buttons with zips and other kinds of fastenings. I used to have a collection of odd buttons... Let me look for it and try some of your wonderful ideas for upcycling.

  21. I love buttons. Sometimes I am tempted to purchase some cute ones just because they look so nice. But then I have to restrain myself and admit that most likely they'd just gather dust in some box in a drawer. It's great to see them come to life on your blog!

  22. I have so many buttons floating around, some I got when my mom and dad passed. I think I might try the bracelet when all this is over as it looks amazing. Thank you for this post and the ideas.

  23. Great ideas. I have a lot of buttons. I featured some of my button art on Thursday. :)

  24. I have a huge collection of buttons, and I use them in my scrapbooking and card making.

  25. I decorated all the tables at my wedding with fabric flowers and buttons. Even put one in my hair.

  26. Buttons go beyond clothing. It's neat to see how others use buttons in creative DIY and art projects. You showcased some pretty ones, too.
