Buttons from Africa

Recently, I was contacted by ButtonMad regarding hosting an exchange offering a free pack of their buttons to crafters in exchange for a tutorial using them.

These buttons provide employment for women in South Africa

They received many applicants and the button tutorials have started coming in.  You can see some of the posts on my sister blog - Totally Tutorials.

Today, I got a package from South Africa with these gorgeous buttons.  I can't wait to use them in a project.  I'm thinking one of the big ones would look great on a bag made with batik or African fabric, hmmmm......

Happy Sewing ♥


  1. What a great exchange! Love the little ones with flowers on them. Can't wait to see what you create with them :)

  2. Those are probably the prettiest buttons I've seen! I can't wait to see what you do with them.

    1. Thanks Edi and Sheryl. The plan is to start carrying these beautiful buttons in my shop next month.
