I Love Buttons

I Love Buttons drawstring bags

Hands up who loves buttons? Well, the fabric gocco prints have been ironed and tested in the washing machine and can be revealed as drawstring bags! There are two colours available – natural cotton and a pretty aqua blue – both with a print in blue. They’re around 9″ square so there’s plenty room to store all your pretty buttons or anything else you fancy. The drawstring is pretty tight so there really are a million uses for it. If you fancy one, they’re available in the shop right now. Go see >>

I’m busy busy at the moment getting my stall ready for Poppytalk Handmade. I’l let you know more once it all opens tomorrow.
