Cute as a button

Covered buttons - my new passion, such fun to make! All covered with fabric that I've hand painted/ hand printed recently. I used 25mm/1" and 30mm/1 3/16" plastic self cover buttons. The fabrics are (pink) silk, and (white) vintage cotton/linen, and the designs are done freehand or with linocuts.

This is a 'work in progress' post, and also a collaborative effort. A while ago I paited these animals onto fabric for my little brother- thinking prayer flags, quilt or something similar, but not being much good at sewing I passed them on to mum to do something with. Here they are after mum has added some colour (they were originally B&W with grey wash), and with the fabrics she's picked for front and back, as well as some thread for funky feature stiching of some kind. I'll post when it's finished too.
