Button Swap!

Now that Kandi has received her parcel for Lucey's Button Swap, organised by Lemonade Kitty... I can show you what I sent her!

**  Somewhere to keep buttons... a button-detailed drawstring bag:

I made this in keeping with Kandi's love for old-fashioned floral prints, and embellished it with lace and buttons.  I used pale pink fabric across the front, and for the lining.

**  Some big (3cm diameter) wooden printed buttons (in the drawstring bag):

**  A crocheted flower brooch, with fabric-covered button centre:

**  A lavender bag, decorated with buttons sewn on in a heart shape:

**  Some magnets made with fabric-covered buttons (available in my Folksy shop):

**  Some drawing pins made with fabric-covered buttons:

**  More buttons:

**  Something edible... well, it had to be chocolate buttons didn't it?!  (Kandi sent me the exact same as I'd already bought for her... great minds think alike!):

Kandi has posted about it on her blog here.  You are probably all following her blog already, because it's great and she makes such lovely things!  This was my first swap, and I really enjoyed it - I'm so glad I decided to go for it!  I also couldn't have asked for a more lovely swap partner - thank you again Kandi!  And thanks to Lemonade Kitty for organising it!

I hope you're all enjoying the long weekend!


  1. What beautiful gifts, well done you! I love your buttons and magnets, they are so pretty. The drawstring bag is lovely, such delicate fabrics. Still kicking myself for not doing this one!

  2. Thanks again honey, I truly adored it all! I didn't photograph the buttons as I shared them out straight away at work, great minds indeed! You can't tell from the photos but that drawstring bag is just perfect, really well made I love it all. Thanks for the kind words too, hope you are coping ok!
    Take care of yourself
