Wooden Buttons

I was making something (surprise, surprise!) but had to put my project on hold (which I never like to do) for some buttons more interesting than the ones that could be found in stash.

I had my eye on a few different button makers on etsy, but decided on these great rustic wooden buttons from Wooden Artist.

Since I think buttons are almost as wonderful as fabric, I was very excited to get these in the mail yesterday, all the way from Slovenia (which is next to Italy).

Even with shipping (in this case only $3) I think these cost less than nice wooden buttons would have cost at the fabric store. And these are handmade. Can you beat that?

  2. They are absolutely gorgeous buttons.
    How do they stand up to laundry?

  3. Ruthie - That I don't know, as the seller doesn't mention laundering. Other sellers of wooden buttons say to remove the buttons before washing.

  7. Those are really lovely. You should contact the seller because sometimes wooden buttons are sealed with a waterproof coating so they can go into the washing machine. Either way, they are a beautiful bargain!

    Love the dotty fleeces too, so cute.

  8. They're adorable! About the washing question if they're not already coated maybe you can do it yourself?
