This week we have a video about how buttons are made. It’s an interesting process. I’m not a big fan of sewing garments with buttons, mostly because I don’t like making buttonholes. :-) But, I do like the many pretty or attractive buttons that we can get in modern times. Buttons don’t have to be used only as closures on garments. They make nice embellishments for quilts, craft projects, home décor and just as decoration on garments.
By the way, I don’t think they mentioned it, but in the past many buttons were made from bone. Sometimes you can find bone buttons at antique and collectible stores or even garage sales or thrift stores.
