Button Wednesday : 2 or 4 holes or not ?



It is Wednesday again, so it's BUTTON DAY on my blog. It would be great if you could do the same; make your Wednesday a button day too. Have you seen a lovely, beautiful, stunning, crazy button or button-related thingy, or did you make something with a button / buttons, or did you even make buttons yourself, blog about it on your blog on Wednesday, and give the link here via Mister Linky at the end of this post.



I am always looking for buttons that have something special, for example not the usual 2 or 4 holes. When I saw these so called ABC buttons, I was thrilled. This ABC button has nine holes ! This enables you to sew it on with every letter and number you want.


And it inspired Steve Hoefer and Derek & Lauren to make some of their own. Moreover, they give you ample instructions to make your own !


It's a pity that I do not have a 9-hole button yet, but I have other peculiarities; 3, 5, 4 in a row, 6, 16 holes. The first four buttons in the mosaic below are intended to have 3 holes (the metal one is a very old military button); the fifth button is a printing mistake. The seventh one is from wood, and I have no idea if it is a real button, but when I found it, it was sewn on as a button. The eight one I got from Kreativlink and the nineth one looks pretty old.




!!!!!!!!!! If you have something for The Button Wednesday, give Mister Linky your name and the link to your button post !!!!!!!!!!!!!
