Retro Buttons

I was going through some of Esther's clothes that were way too small for her. Including the cute baby vests and decided that they were NOT going to waste!....Gotta throw them into my scrap fabric pile to make softies, buttons or anything else I decide. I normally pass on the good clothes to friends who have little ones. In fact they sometimes come around again if I'm lucky!.....Though I didn't want to part with these ones so I decided to make buttons. Baby grow or vest fabric (oneses for US) is perfect for this because it stretches and it's easy to stitch onto afterwards.

Thought I'd crochet some button covers to match while I was at it!

Buttons give me an excuse to make more of these flowers, and it's a quick project add-on!!
