Our Creative Space...



We borrowed an old button maker of a friend. Looks interesting, right :)?


We use alot of vintage embroidery for our bags, but some pieces are damaged or stained and can't be used for that. So we wanted something to not throw those pieces away.

With some simple materials and muscle strength...


...We now have these super cute buttons.

  2. wow, super cool! i want one of those button makers. in scrapbooking, a manufacturer actually came out with one of these handheld tools to do the same thing, but the vintage one looks way cooler!

  5. Swee: it is a few kilo's, best is to attach is to a table so that you can give your strength easier as you have to push it hard.
