Re: Upcycle Ugly Buttons into Pretty Coasters

I just had to comment about making coasters by crocheting over buttons. It brought back the memory of a a bunch of grapes my mother made by covering pop bottle caps with purple crochet thread then sewing them together to look like a bunch of grapes.

I always wanted to duplicate that bunch of grapes but have never had the bottle caps. Can't believe I didn't once think of buttons, because I, too, love buttons and never abandon a homeless or homely one.

Though buttons wouldn't do well for a hot pad, smaller ones could make cute coasters.

Thanks for sharing such a great idea. Love it!
