I love buttons and even collect them, but I cannot imagine sewing this many buttons on one garment.

The beauty of art is that the unimaginable becomes tangible.

  6. Unbelievable! That is one huge amount of buttons. It took much more patience than I possess.

  7. I love buttons but I once lost my mind when I had to sew 18 on an owl hat - that many would kill me, I'm sure.

  9. Remember those bugs in jars quilt blocks? One of my caravan friends loved collecting buttons so I made her a cushion. It had three jar blocks and I stitched buttons in them, just like her own button jars.

  10. My first thought was --- oh my! That would be so heavy to wear. It is a very interesting art installation.

  12. I doubt anyone would ever wear that -- definitely art. For a different look at buttons on cloths check our the The Pearlies in UK. http://thepearlies.co.uk
