Buttons, toggles, buckles and frogs

Check back later to see these buttons on a pillow!

A button (or three) adorning a pillow can be that finishing touch that completes the look for your home interior. Finding buttons is an adventure in and of itself. Ever since one of my interior designers ordered a pillow with a mitered face and a large square wooden button in the center I have been on the look out for all colors, sizes and types of buttons. I'm ready to share my secrets. M&J Trimming has a diverse selection of decorative buttons. I prefer buttons from bone, horn, shell, wood and metal. You can also find a great selection from Durango Button Company. If you're in a rush, the best place to look locally is yarn shops. They stock large buttons for sweaters and bags. Lastly, vintage buttons are a great accent and can be purchased on garments at used clothing stores.


  1. Looking forward to seeing the buttons on pillows!

  2. Aren't they the best? I may have to incorporate them in a wet felted pillow, I have everything I need, just need to get the elbow grease out!
