Button, Button, who’s got the Button?! I do!! And they are for you! We’ve been going a little button crazy over here Especially after I showed you some ideas on how you can use character buttons on crochet hats like my Santa Sleigh and Reindeer Crochet Hat and then the Farm Animal Hat with Fence Border. Unfortunately these buttons can be tough to find. The ones pictured are mostly from Michaels (ArtMinds brand) but also from Jo-Anns and Hobby Lobby. I snagged some extra Farm Animal buttons and gave them away on my Facebook Page but I secretly wished I could do more to help those of you who don’t live near a craft store…
And then something wonderful happened!
A longtime follower of my blog and avid crocheter of my hat patterns sent me an e-mail to say she would like to donate more buttons! Not just one or two packs…she ended up mailing me 16 packs of buttons! Bless her heart! She insisted on not being named, but I wanted all of you to know about this kind and generous soul. I threw in a couple more packages for a total of 25 packs of buttons! Lots of Farm animals, sheep, cars, trucks, owls, dinosaurs, rainbows, monkeys, spaceships, and more!
25 packs of buttons means 25 winners!

Oh, and lets talk about one more thing. For some reason some of the buttons don’t have holes or posts. I have no idea why. There is a couple things you can do in this situation. You can glue the button directly to your hat with a glue called Gem-tac, or just hot glue that sucker on. Another idea I had was to glue a small pony bead to the back of the button to create a post. You can do this with either hot glue or E-6000 (E-6000 will probably give you a better hold) and then sew it on just like you would the other buttons. If you have any other ideas please post them in the comments below!
