Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Buttons, long a popular collectible, have entered the world of wearable art as decorations. They can be sewn or glued to clothing or solid objects or incorporated into jewelry. Although commercial buttons are available in great variety, some stitchers prefer to make their own. These projects, collected by noted crafter Cusick from many American designers, have instructions for making buttons from gemstones, leather, needlework, clay, and other materials and for using finished buttons as embellishment for clothing, jewelry, bags, and boxes.

This book is just what I have been searching for. It has so many ideas to help a button lover get started on button crafts, from the simple to the more intricate ones. Illustrations and directions or suggestions on making button jewelry, and beautifying clothing, boxes, ties, frames, etc with buttons.There is also a section on making your own buttons, and another has designers & collectors choose their favorites. A great book for anyone who loves buttons!

I expected some quality button crafting ideas and there weren't that many I could use. I usually keep all of my craft books and ended up recycling this book instead. Not worth the purchase price.
