MakeYour Own Heirloom Buttons

Threads magazine - 169 - Oct./Nov. 2013 Issue
Article Image
Making your own buttons is one of the best ways to add a personalized touch to a special project, and heirloom button styles are particularly distinctive: Each one is a small, handmade art piece. They are not often seen outside of antique garments or historical reproductions, but they can create a truly custom closure in just the right size and color for your modern garments. Nancy Nehring will teach you how to make four relatively simple heirloom button styles in this article from Threads #169.
