More button inspiration
I promised to make a follow up to the botton/bowl post the other day. So here are some pictures of buttons that I find inspiring, and a couple of the results from my playing with them.
The button-thing goes back to the sixties when my grandparents had a shop, where they made dresses. I loved to visit them in the shop, to look at all the fabrics and play with the buttons that were kept in a large box. I made rows and pattterns on the floor with them. When my grandmother died in the early 70´s, I inherited another box with buttons and I still have a lot of them.
So look out for fleemarkets,old ladies sewing baskets and old clothes, and the world will never be the same again..
