Button bracelet

Earlier this year my nan died (i'm full of joy this week aren't i!) and when my mum and her sisters were clearing out my Nans home there were lots of bits and bobs that my mum thought i could put to good crafting use.  In the bag was lots of spare buttons off clothes that she had kept over the years.  Last night i decided that it would be nice to make them into a bracelet and then give it back to my mum as a little something to keep. 


  1. aw thats really touching what a lovely idea, Im sure she will treasure it x

  2. I'm really sorry to hear you lost your Nan. The idea of passing the buttons back as a bracelet is lovely, I am sure your mum will be really touched by that.
