I love buttons. They are one of my favorite crafting supplies and I can never seem to walk past them at the fabric store without adding a few to my collection. When I was a kid, my mom kept all of her buttons in a large jar that we had to dump out and search through when you needed something specific. I decided to make things a little bit easier on myself and sort my buttons by color, so they aren’t quite so hard to find.
I separated my buttons into 13 categories. Black, White, Red, Orange, Dark Blue, Light Blue, Green, Pink, Yellow, Brown, Grey, Purple and Metallic. I keep all of the buttons except the gold and silver ones on a shelf about my pegboard organizer. Since many of my metallic buttons are the larger, almost brooch like, they sit in a candy jar in another spot in my craft room.
