Fabric Friday - Button, Button, I like Buttons

29 comments
Buttons! We all love them, don't we? Buttons and fabric just go together. So if you combine the two, you get button fabric.
This is a favorite piece of fabric and I've been hoarding it for a while now. I have some ideas for ways to use it but I won't let myself until I finish some of my poor UFOs. This fabric really is a fussy cutter's dream. There is so much cuteness to look at.
This is another sweet button fabric with vintage cards. And it has snap cards, too. So cute.
This one is a French themed button fabric. I don't speak French so I'm not sure what it says. But who cares. I like it.
I have it in this colorway, too. I know you can't see the exact green from the photo but this is one of my very favorite shades of green. It is really beautiful.
This is another French fabric with labels. But it also has button card/labels. I also just love writing on fabric. All these fabrics give the eye so much to enjoy.

Soak up the last few days of summer. It was cold here yesterday!

Love the button card fabrics! I have a bunch of vintage button cards that I found in my grandma's and MILs sewing things. Someday I want to display them in my sewing room, along with lots of other sewing supplies.

At first glance I wondered where you got all those amazing buttons. So funny. Super fun fabrics. You quite an awesome collection. Thanks for letting us have a peek at it. Very inspiring.

We had a button jar that I played with when I was little, and then my kids used it to help them with math. Too bad counting buttons doesn't help them with calculus and algebra! Darling fabrics, so unique - I've never seen any like them.

Kim Walus said...

I must say that's some great fabric. I loved the first two the very best. WOW!

Micki said...

You have quite the collection!

I love to cover buttons after getting a few from you.
I just adore those first 2 fabrics. So cute.

I'm trying hard not to be jealous of your cooler weather. It's 93 here right now with a heat index of 103. Still definitely summer here.

Those fabrics are gorgeous. I know you'll have fun with them. You find the most interesting things! Thanks for sharing them with us.

Becky said...

Cool button fabric! I remember button cards looking like that when my grandmother sewed for us "little girls." Take care!

Jackie said...

I agree with Anna, you do have the most amazing fabrics! These are absolutely wonderful. I have to say that we have had wonderful sleeping weather, fall is certainly on its way.

Pat said...

You have the best fabric. If I ever get to Utah, I think I'll elect to bypass the usual scenic tourist attractions and go see your stash instead!!! LOL

Lurline said...

Nanette, I have NEVER collected buttons - and now when I walk into haberdashery I feel so sad abut that - never mind, too late now! Love your fabrics, too!
Hugs - Lurline♥

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

Oh my goodness, that button card fabric is amazing!!!

pratima said...

These are so adorable! Wonderful collection, Nanette :)

Aunt Spicy said...

I am so completely dying over those fabrics! I would really have to have the perfect project to even be able to cut into them!

julieQ said...

Very pretty fabric! I so remember my mother's button box...it was a favorite place to play when I was a child...big and little buttons, old and new!

sallgood said...

I had a red button collection when I was a little girl. I remember sorting them, and just loving the different shades and shapes.

belinda said...

WOW...these are soooo CRAZY GOOD!!
