Steampunk Buttons!

On a recent trip to JoAnn Fabrics I discovered a wonderful new supply–steampunk style buttons! They are relativity inexpensive and  can be added to any sewing project to ‘punk it up. I bought some to refurbish my winter coat!

The majority of them are gears in a variety of metal finishes, sizes, and gear styles. Some are more intricate and highlight old objects or fiction themselves, like:

Skeleton keys (which I can’t wait to use to fasten a cloak and a coat) and an elaborate Octopus button (which I would use as a brooch instead of a button because it is so fabulous).

There were also some compasses and clock faces, which could be improved upon with a little bit of painting!

As always, Happy Crafting!
