What are they?

Today I got out my fabric paints, a few left over bits of fabric, felt and embroidery floss ends and messed around with the button kit I bought a few weeks ago. I didn't want to make buttons so I pulled out the shanks and will shortly be supergluing magnets to the backs. I figured they can be either fridge magnets or worn as a brooch with another magnet on the other side of the clothing.

I kinda like the painted ones which were just improvised on the spot with the bits of metallic embroidery floss that I've been using these past few days.

Very pretty buttons. I think your combinbation of fabric + fabric paint + felt + embroidery floss = very original and beautiful items! BTW I'm sure superglues work great when attaching magnets on back of the buttons, but glue guns (hot) work wonders, too!

Thank you, chick chick! I shall have to get hold of a hot glue gun, since I always manage to get superglue on my fingers!
