Scattered buttons lying around are a pretty common sight – one can find them shoved in drawers with dust bunnies, desktops or kept with coins somewhere.
How about creating a sewing box? Gather all buttons and place them in one designated container. Add in those loose safety pins, threads, measuring tape and hotel sewing kits. Label it “Sewing”. Putting in scissors completes this new kit.
If you have some spare time (though not necessary), you can segregate buttons by color for quicker identification when needed.
Here’s a simple -but totally works- idea for using those extra buttons (especially those that came with a garment that you no longer own). (-:
Purge Tip: If you have plenty of the same button type and don’t need them, you can give them to Crafter’s who might want to use them for doll eyes, a fun pillowcase design, scrap booking or other craft projects.
