Ok….ok. Before you judge me as a completely insane old hoarder lady I have an excuse to why I have such a big button collection. Well, kind of. For some reason I love using buttons as the inspiration to my sewing, for example my skunk and toucan dresses were both inspired by their buttons. Often I will find a button I love and then build a dress around it which doesn’t even include the button. Hmm… I just read that back and realised how insane that sounded. Ok permission to judge.
When taking these photos I noticed that my collection is divided completely into animals and foods. I guess that makes sense. I do love things I can eat and things I can hug.
