Shell Buttons




I found these lovely shell buttons on ebay and bought a bag of 36 for Old Farm projects. Lately I have been making pillow covers using buttons which adds more interest and design options. The pillow covers here were made from the left-over fabric I had from making large bolster covers for the big upstairs bedroom and was just enough to soften two footstools for that room. They are cotton lined and stuffed with Pottery Barn feather inserts.


The varied thickness and shell patterns of these buttons make you want to use them…


Bill painted two old footstools I found on ebay and stripped first. They are the last pieces of furniture for upstairs which I will use for many things, and my Christmas present!
