I Reluctantly Choose Buttons

OK, I agree with many of my readers who suggested velcro or something other than what I offered... what really got me motivated was the comment that the kids would lose the clip. Ok, you're all right. I was just hoping I could be lazy. Do you know that I *hate* sewing on buttons? And yet I decided to try this...






I'm actually happy with this result! I think it looks so cute! Now I just need to find some buttons that will go with the rest of the bags. I had two of these quilty buttons. I put them on a bag for me and a bag for a friend. The rest will be generic so I can sell them. I wonder if there is a (cheap) button somewhere that says "time for lunch!"

I think the buttons were a good choice. I would be afraid that the clips would come off too easily and be lost.

They look so fun!

The buttons are a good choice. Good luck on finding some "lunch" buttons. I bet they're out there somewhere.

I like the buttons too. If you can't find ones with fun sayings on them maybe you could just use large bright ones! I'm sure folks will like them.

I love the button! Bias tape makes great buttonholes... I know I don't mike to make buttonholes on the machine.

I bet you will sell a bunch!
