What do you do with your extra buttons?
When you buy a piece of clothing that has an extra button for you to use if you lose one, what do you do with it? I know I should probably have a box or something to put them in, but they always turn up in the junk drawer and I find them five years after I might need them.
I like to use buttons on cloth purses and handbags because they come in handy for keeping the purse closed. These are some of the interesting thing about buttons especially the ones that fall off sweaters and I forget to sew them back on again.
What a fun question!
It begs the further question about what people do with all those single socks that seem to lose their partners over the washing cycle...?
I keep them in a special container and look at them from time to time. But never once have I ever needed to use one. By the time a button falls off, I am ready for a new piece of clothing anyway! They sure are pretty to look at though. Not sure why ....
Throw them in a plastic tub, then hot glue onto stuff later for decoration. Or sew them onto pillows. I am collecting them now from re-purposed clothing in hopes of having enough one day to do a whole wall mural in buttons. I knew someone once who kept all the spare buttons from new clothes in a labeled organizer with matching thread. Now that is pretty OCD!
