The embroidery on the top two pages were for TAST challenge. [blogged here]
I made the buttons above out of card and paper using a piece of the same artwork as the background.
I used purchased buttons on the page below and the background is painted and collaged with a painted doily. I used running stitch to join these pages together.
If you have been following my blog for quite a while you may have seen these two pages before. They used to be rectangular but I cut them round to include in the book. They were featured in a Cloth, paper, scissors magazine 
I used tiny bought buttons on the fishy paper applique.
The page below was created from an inkjet print of some of the fabric designs I did for a cheater quilt and I made the coordinating buttons to go with it.
