Welcome from me too Lizzielogs. I recently located to South Devon from the South East. I too often think about making bags but so far have only got as far as totes. Lots of ideas in my head just need to put them into practice. Would love to see some of your bags.

What a lovely chest of drawers Iminei.

I was in town this morning and there was a picture in the window of an art shop made entirely of buttons. It was very effective.

When I was in Sydney a few years ago I came across a button shop - just selling buttons in all shapes, sizes, colours. Spent a while in there.  :)

Thank you very much :flower:  Bookmarked and will try with some scrap material  8)

Thanks for asking Snowgoose - I was trying to work it out too. Thank you to Francesca for the article - I have also bookmarked it.

I am sure it was somewhere but can't find it. What do all the symbols below our avatars mean? Buttons, heart etc.

Yes, the Cash name tapes. I'm sure there are odd ones in one of my button tins - can't throw them away. Just remembered I also have a third button tin just with white shirt buttons (not sure why) but just can't throw away a button!

I used to love going through my Mum's button tin and remember in particular some buttons which looked like oblong fried eggs. Must ask her if she still has her button tin.

I see we have the same machine Ajuga. Your cat certainly seems to like it!

She does Sheilago. Poppy appears as soon as the cover comes off!

Do you all have button boxes/tins. I now have two as have so many button but I can always find what I need without having to buy more.

Interesting thread. I assumed that you would all make your own pin cushions as they are so quick to make. I have one that I made at school that I still use 50 years later (cross stitch) about 5" x 5". I can't be doing with little fiddly ones. I have also made a few patchwork ones recently so that I can leave one next to the ironing board and can always find a pin cushion when I need it.

What a brilliant idea and a fun project for using the scraps.

My text is still showing under the avatar box. Never seen it beside it.

Just another question ... is everyone's post under their avatar?.. it takes a lot of space and scrolling... could the post be next to the avatar and not under it?

I wondered about this. On my PC the post is under the avatar.

I don't seem to get notifications whatever the settings. Must be doing something wrong!
