Format: Paperback
It's really a wonderful collection, the projects are all pretty easy, but require different skill sets. There are 24 projects total covering a wide range of techniques.
The basic materials explains what you'll need for most of the projects, and buttons by type describes types of vintage buttons but having a great vintage button supply isn't necessary for the projects in the book.
The first project is an easy pearly button frame that uses a strong glue and buttons on a purchased blank frame.
The final project in the book is a lovely soldered ring that would be a great use of buttons from your grandmother's stash or very special buttons.
The projects in between are sewn, felted and wired. My favorites are the recycled sweater handwarmers which use a used sweater to create pretty fitted mitts with cute button accents and are very adaptable. I'm hitting the thrift store today for sweaters to use for this project. The pincushion-topped button jar is so cute I can't resist it, and the kanzashi-style hair clip.
Lovely book. The projects are varied enough that I found a few things I loved in it, and so did my 14 yo daughter.

Fun little book with many options for using up old or new buttons. I'd recommend this book whether you are a button lover or have tons of buttons to use or not though.

Many of the projects are actually things I've been wanting to make (like pins, a camera case, pincushions) and/or find patterns for and haven't gotten around to buying or looking them up. Because of this, it's almost like getting two books in one. Photos are clear and the patterns seem easy to follow.

I really like this book, at my first week with it I finished the camera case (the real reason I bought it) and I loved it. Detailed instructions and easy to understand to people with basic knowledge of sewing.
