Too simple, huh?! 
Wow ’em with the Wine Bottle…
Isn’t this a great way to spuce up that wine bottle you are taking to your friend’s Christmas party?
How simple… Just make a pretty button (or two or three), cut out a few fabric leaves and a square of fabric/burlap and tie it all together with some raffia around your bottle. Just lovely.
And of course our favorite has got to be embellishing those beautiful quilts!
Bunny Hill is such a perfect example of how covered buttons can add that special touch to your quilt.
Their A Tisket A Tasket block of the month is absolutely darling with its little button embellishments.

Somehow I missed ever seeing this gadget or otherwise would have it already…:) Besides its use, it also brings sush wonderful childhood memories…my mom would mostly have her dresses made and with covered buttons too! As a kid I would take the fabric to the “button lady” to have them done (yes there were “button ladies” in former Yugoslavia, few decades ago, where clothes were mostly tailor made rather than bought in the store.

  79. Ingenious! I love the iTop, it looks so quick ‘n’ easy. I definitely need this timesaver in my life. No more bruised thumbs trying to snap buttons together! I could use it for Rudolf’s red nose, Santa’s black buttons or a string of lights on my Christmas cushions, the ideas are flowing.

    I have been drooling over this in the stores since I first saw it! Love to have one for all my crafty obsessions! Also just had two nieces born this year who I will be making all of their “fussy” clothes for, and this would be fantastic for that too…. Fingers crossed!

  81. Skyeclad says:

    If Santa left one of these in my stocking I would happily use it to embellish bags and quilts and other crafts but I could also use it to make buttons for the kids clothes I have dancing in my head… my great niece would be the best dressed on the block.

  82. WoolenSails says:
