I loved the vintage buttons I bought recently in Montréal so much that I've been thinking of making a button bracelet. I got the idea from one that was in the store, it had really nice buttons on it, but it was made of metal links and I thought I would rather have the bracelet part made of a ribbon or something similar. So I crocheted a "ribbon" using brown pearl cotton (size 8), and a tiny 1.75 mm crochet hook. One end has a loop to go around a button for a clasp, and the rest of the buttons are sewn onto the top in the usual way.Once it's closed, the clasp button covers the gap:Here's a detail, these are some of my favourite buttons, in my favourite colours:It's a great way to enjoy your favourite buttons and have a one-of-a-kind bracelet!
