My wonderful vintage buttons

Today I’ve been to my friend Nina’s workroom and we’ve spent the morning together. She has shown me some wonderful vintage brim blocks that she has gotten and perhaps next Monday we will give them a go.

I have given her one of my pin cushions which I’m sure has found a good home with her (it’s the yellow one with a green button), and some of her vintage buttons have found a good home with me!

Aren’t they just great?! Now I have to think of a deserving project to use them on. You can check more pictures on this link.


  1. They are great. There’s just something about a collection of buttons…

  2. Ahhhh, beautiful buttons. Sounds like a fun friend get together.

    On another note, the hat book from Japan has arrived, still need to look further at it. Am thinking to start with a linen hat for spring. What are you wanting to sew from that book?
