Button It Up: 80 Amazing Vintage Button Projects by Susan Beal
West Coast Crafty’s Susan Beal has a new book out today, Button It Up: 80 Amazing Vintage Button Projects. If you are a lover of vintage buttons like me, this book is filled with projects to inspire you and keep you crafting. The variety of projects is fantastic — learn how to turn your buttons into necklaces, earrings, rings and embellish napkins, curtains, bags, and more. I love the the photos in the book and the detailed illustrations that take you through the steps of making the projects. Many of the projects in the book would be fantastic and easy gifts to make for friends and loved ones.
Here are just a few of my favorites:
Triple Dip Feedsack Necklace
Button Embellished Handbag
Check back here on Friday at Noon when this Loop-D-Loops curtain project will be available for download in our CRAFT Pattern Podcast.
