Loosened from the mud, I find myself floating in a world of possibility.

So can you.

Iron Craft: Button Up

OK. So there are people that really like buttons. Then there are people who see buttons and think about all the shirts they need to mend and replace. I'm in the latter catogory. Granted there is a shirt or two that I shouldn't have anymore in my closet but I just can't seem to get rid of because of the awesome buttons.

And there is a shirt that no longer fits but has awesome buttons and one of which just recently fell off and it really should be thrown out but I just can't bear the thought of never having that shirt again so I will ramble on and on and try to forget that it needs to be tossed.

This week's Iron Craft challenge was to do something with buttons. As usual, I groaned. Then I got over it and went to work.

I made this:

My groaning is always pointless because I always enjoy the crafting. Does that say something neurotic about me? I hope not. Anyway I got the idea from here.

I made the bouquet on a really hot evening. I broke a sweat. But that was from the heat and not the work that went into the bouquet.

I love it so much I bought a shelf so that I can put this in the Lotus Bud's room! I might even re-do her whole room based on this Seussical button bouquet!


  1. Oh my gosh, I love it! the colors & shapes are so fun.

  2. I agree....i love the color combination too...its so very pleasing, yet colorful. Would look cute in Bud's nursery i guess....am getting ideas..Thanks!
    Great project Manisha!!

  3. Visiting you from IronCraft! Very cute! Thanks for including a link for the tutorial! Love them!
