Recently, I've been thinking about button bracelets. My Grandma Pearl use to make them back when I was a child. They were these big, bulky things, crocheted with gold buttons. Although I learned much of my crafting from Grandma Pearl, I did not share her enthusiasm for button bracelets. Jump forward a number of years, uhm, make that a really, really BIG jump, and now I find myself fascinated and in-love with button bracelets. Granted, these are not my grandma's bracelets, but I was delighted to find out that my grandbabies also thought they were awesome. So, this Sunday, after our Sunday Dinner, we pulled out ONE of my boxes of buttons, made some selections, and within an hours time, everyone had made their own bracelet. Pixie, age 7, had a bit of trouble keeping everything straight, so we worked on one together, with Pixie in charge of the design. I think they turned out lovely. And, if you're watching Grandma Pearl, I finally made a button bracelet!!!
