Pushing the right buttons.

When she needs a break from her lil' sis (who does know how to push her buttons), my artistic middle kiddo retreats to her room, the "world of clay." The other day, she wanted to make something new out of her Fimo, so she asked me for an idea. "How about buttons?" I casually suggested. "Maybe you could sell them in the store?"

A short while later, we had this:

My favorite is the one I call "Dyslexic OU." Surely there is a market among reading-challenged Sooner fans. OSU fans get the cactus version (I guess that's my daughter's mental image of Stillwater - desert?). And you gotta love the surfboard (inspired by our recent beach trip), winking smiley face and the chocolate chip cookie.

Now, anyone know where to get the little clear shanks to glue on the back? Hobby Lobby was a no-go. As soon as we find 'em, the button maker is in business and taking special orders :) Anything to promote sibling summer harmony.

Great buttons, could she use a toothpick and make holes?

Awesome buttons! With all the baby items I and my knitting buddies are making, we'd buy those in a snap.

For the buttons - have you tried like a Hancocks or Michaels? I would think a fabric store would have a button making kit where all you would typically do is buy fabric. But you could just steal the button backs and add them to her creations instead.

Please post when you've got them available - I'd love to drop in and pick some up!
