One quart sized bag marked "cream blend" was $3.00 and it a was true treasure trove. It was full of gorgeous mostly Mother of Pearl buttons with some plastics thrown in. I have since gone online and priced some of these carved buttons and now I really know what a huge bargain this was.
Here is the back of the jacket. It was a little challenging sewing through the denim and getting a good grip. When you see some of the details below you will think I need some button sewing skill improvement.
|This was just a plain Mother of Pearl, but I loved the luster and simplicity.|
|These are a few of the etched or carved MOP that I saw on Etsy and other places for a pretty penny.|
|For the front the jacket I just sewed one special button to one collar point. See the detail below.|
This was from my mother's button box and is not Mother of Pearl, but a cream colored bone or maybe even plastic. I just love it whatever it is. Look at the detail. I tried to find something similar online, but was unsuccessful. If anyone can give me any info, I would be most appreciative.
I haven't linked up with Off the Wall Friday in awhile, but I am this week so go see what some other talented people are doing.
