I have yet to meet someone that loves sewing and does not have a deeply-held love for fabric and buttons. I adore buttons, and sometimes I use them for sewing.
I have a pretty decent collection of buttons. They come from estate sales, they come from lot sales, they come from online stores, they come from brick and mortar stores, and they come from our own old clothes. But instead of showing you (or showing off) my button collection, I’ll show you how I store them.
I have kept every jar of salsa and dips we’ve bought in the last few years (not that many really). I’ve used my favorite fabric scraps to cover the lids, some coordinating thin rickrack to finish it.
I organized my buttons by colors and size, and now I get a little bit of happiness every time I see them.
I like the jars almost as much as I like the buttons. And they are pretty organized, and organized prettily, which is just how I like things.
How do you organize and store your buttons?
