Anyway, I found many boxes and jars filled with these buttons. I consolidated them down into one grocery bag for easy storage.
Inside this bag is a gallon zip lock bag of all the loose buttons. I have no clue what to do with these but they are so cool to look at.
Maybe a fun kids project someday where they glue the buttons onto something? No clue but I'm keeping them. Now here's the best part - there's buttons that are actually cool looking and I can imagine them in a knitting project somewhere.
I've only used a button once for a baby cardigan but I think I have a good idea as to how these could be used in adult cardigans. I keep sorting through the bag and finding more and more that I could use in future projects. I find myself designing projects around the buttons, my grandmother-in-law would be so proud.
The colors on this one inspire me to make something with rose and brandy colors! All I can think of is cardigans - what else can I knit up and use my beautiful button stash?
