I have a thing for buttons,
not sure why, I just like them.
Vintage buttons are really my favorite, guess it's their story.
Where have they been? Who wore them?
I just think they're neat.
Anyway, one day while looking around on Pinterest, I saw these napkins. They were from Martha Stewart's site.
I love Martha.
I pinned them too and added them to my "sewing" board.
Looking through my stash, there were a few buttons left over but they just didn't seem right. Taking a trip to my favorite fabric hangout didn't help either, so this project was put on hold.
while thrifting with my mother, we found this!
Yep, you guessed it. A beautiful blue jar filled with buttons!
And do you know what?
There was every color and size of button I needed for my button/napkin project!
Isn't it funny how some things just work out like that?
I figured it must be fate, must be time to work on this project.
And, do you know what else? I had the perfect napkins too!
They were made a while back and were just "waiting" to be used.
What do you think?
Cute and easy!
By the way, did you know that there is a game played with buttons?
You might try it if you have little ones. You can read all about it here!
