Part of the finishing touch I give to every bag I sew is the addition of a vintage button. I am extremely picky about this. For me, it’s such an important detail, that I’ve even delayed finishing a bag when I can’t find just the right button that works. Great barkcloth and high quality workmanship are always a given. It’s finding the right button that is the unknown element. The deal maker, or breaker, so to speak.
I was so excited to come across the collection of buttons above. They are all winners, and they will all inspire me at some point in the future. I love the big and bold ones. I love the small, playful ones. In short-I love a great vintage button.
This black button has to be the most enormous button I’ve ever come across. ( I’m wondering if I’ll need a building permit when I decide to use it some day!)
My question for you is-what part of your craft has to be just right? Is there one detail in what you do, that if you can’t get it just right you are not satisfied? This is a unusual question I know-but I’d love to know your thoughts!
