Button holes made out of buttons

I am a recent convert to blogging and one happy discovery I have made is the abundance of fashion related blogs there are. I am particularly excited about the crafty ones, the ones that are focused on upcycling and recycling and a lot of the time simply customising things for fun. I am following a few and will share my favourites on my blog. It is really good to see what other people are doing and get new ideas and also just feel part of a wider community who like to make, customise and recycle/upcycle things.

I generally  have a number of projects on the go at once, and as a result tend to take a bit of time in completing my larger projetcs so when I spotted a post on a blog called Helen Makes Things about button holes made from buttons which looked quite quick and easy I couldnt resist. See the picture below and you will see why!

The idea is so simple it is genius! My first attempt at the leaves wasn't great as my fabric was a lot darker but I think I did ok...what do you think?
