Button button I love making buttons

The title of this post says it all.

I. Love. Making. Buttons. 🙂

I have been making them all my adult life, using different mediums, and right now, I am in a love love love state about making wooden buttons.

I enjoy making eco friendly buttons from the trees that fall down in our grove, or from the twigs and wood that my sisters-in-law prune from the gorgeous arbutus tree in their yard.

But recently, my friend, Molly, asked me to make thinner buttons….

So, I have been making thinner buttons, and loving it!

I’ve been doing wood burning for decades, and really enjoy embellishing the buttons with ‘pyrography’ (wood burning).

I will start getting them into my etsy shop next week.

I was surprised to learn that mailing them isn’t as expensive as I thought it would be, so it is definitely something I will follow through on.

(People asked me if I would do this, and I said no, because I thought that the postage would be insane. Ahem…. after I actually checked it out…. ahem…. it turns out to be ‘yes’)  🙂

I am participating in lots of artisan’s markets/maker’s faires and outdoor festivals this summer, so I will post the dates for those on my facebook page- LINK

In my previous post, I showed how to make  3 different styles of closures using a lucet… LINK

This makes special buttons even more special 🙂

This video tutorial demonstrates on a small Dewberry Ridge Looms triangle loom, but the technique is the same, no matter what size the loom.

Weaving a triangle isn’t just weaving a triangle- they can be combined to make squares and rectangles, so your design possibilities are completely unlimited!

I used the 14 inch triangle loom from Dewberry Ridge Looms to weave a stole for my daughter:  Link

And I made a video tutorial on  how I used tambour crochet to decorate the triangles: Link

Of course, you can use a tri loom to weave triangular shawls, too…. LINK
