I love buttons and have acquired quite the little collection over the years. When I lived in a studio apartment in Chicago with some sweet retro metal kitchen cabinets, I fashioned a bunch of my favorites into magnets. But between having a business and two kids three and under, I feel like I NEVER get to do personal projects anymore. Still, I did manage to squeeze in these awesome little rings not too long ago. They come from a pdf tutorial that can be purchased (quite affordably might I add!) from Sew Bettie. Easy, and super fun, I love the results and just how creative I could get on my own, while sticking to the pattern. Now instead of these lovely buttons sitting in a box, I can wear my collection wherever I go! So the next time you are feeling crafty or the need to expand into some other media for a change (I know we've all been there!), check out sewbettie.com. There just might be a pattern or tutorial that inspires you!
