Okay ... I'm now officially obsessed with buttons! Like The Typewriter, I already owned a couple of 1940s issues of Fortune Magazine. Inside, I found several advertisements for typewriters and accounting machines. I fused three to fabric and started covering them in buttons.
I love hand-stitching every evening ... especially when the work is so much fun! Plus, my mind has wandered to even more ideas for buttons. I have a couple projects in mind and one even underway.
The buttons cover the brand names of the machines ... because that's not the important part! It's all about the buttons and all these "new" devices have them ... whether advertising accounting features or rhythm touch or a new movie about women in the office.
I like these so much that I might even put them in frames. Right now, they are simply matted to a standard size.
