Round buttons are sooooo square!

Seriously, liven up your your buttons with these absolutely gorgeous ideas for a flowered button. While they may be a bit impractical for buttoning up a coat, they are certainly perfect as decorative touches on any project. Indeed, I can think of about a dozen places off hand, in which I could use these as a colorful, fun accent. Better still, they are super, super easy to make and a great way to use up bits of yarn too small for anything else. Of course, it gets even better, because there is absolutely NO limit on the variety and sizes of these. So, only your imagination and supply of buttons are the limits.
