My mother used to collect a lot of peculiar buttons, so once I got hold on some of them, I had the idea of turning them into earrings. Their design is perfect to have in your collection the "all time classic" earrings. Also I managed to turn an old table cloth into an apron for my kitchen. All sewing was made by hand without a sewing machine(since I still don't have one). It has become very handy and so practical.
