Busy with Buttons Book Review
Have you signed up for the Button Swap yet? If you haven't, find out more info about it here. If you have, You rock!
If you need a little button inspiration, read my review of the book Busy with Buttons by Jill Gorski below.
Busy with Buttons: Save, Stitch, Create and Share by Jill Gorski
This book is full of buttons! The book starts out talking about collecting buttons, then moves onto a reference of buttons talking about all of the different kinds of buttons, which I think is neat. Jill shows you different techniques to attach buttons, from sewing to gluing. The rest of the book is jam-packed with projects using buttons.
You're bound to find inspiration and things you want to make in this book!
I like that the majority of the projects in this book are new and original (at least to me.)
I love the Flower-Full Yardstick Cover project that is featured on the cover of the book- The button flowers are very bold and beautiful against the black felt. You can find instructions for this project on page 108 of the book.
Another favorite project of mine in this book are the Button Magnets that you can find the tutorial for on page 116.
If you need (or just want!) a new craft book to add to your bookshelf, I recommend checking Jill's book out! Click here to find this book on Amazon.
