Looking for the biggest button in the jar, sorting all the colors, then sorting them all by size. Then we would put them in to the smaller boxes in the toy box to make shakers and noise makers! Sometimes we would find string and make button spinners that wizzed and twisted the string. I loved that jar of buttons.
You can see I tried to draw some buttons. I think I sort of succeded but I'm not sure. I really liked the pencil sketch but after inking it I think I did too much in some areas and maybe not enough in others. I do like the highlights on some of the buttons.
What do you think? Do you have any great button memories??
