On Etsy since 2008

My Old Fashion Button Machine.

It took me quite awhile to write about my shop not because I have nothing to say. Friends and family who knows me would disagree strongly as I am extremely vocal and loves lively discussions about anything under and above the sky !

It is just that my tale would be one which I am still soaking in the marvel of it. Indeed one word to sum it up would be… serendipity.

I was never crafty nor was I creative in the first place. I remember loving art and crafts lessons but failed miserably as I just simply can't draw to save my life. I dabbled in small projects but never patient enough to see it through. It is like this part of the world always eluded me and I am always hovering around the edges , trying to get a foot in.

How did I manage to opened a shop here on Etsy and being moderately successful, I am still wondering about it! It wasn't planned nor was it a dream when I was young. Life simply has a way of it's own, leading one to one's path if one allows it.

I started out as a nurse which till now, I considered one of the best decision I ever made in my life. It taught me so much about humanity and also to live responsibly and instill a strong sense of discipline in me. These all I would later find out it is essential in a seller.

Then 12 years ago, I had a button off one of my favorite shirt and was pretty sad about it. I remembered my mother who used to be a seamstress used to have a horde of buttons so I asked her to help me make some. I had no idea how to make a button and she was so amused. She pointed to this green colored metal machine and told me that this was what she had used to make buttons. I was astonished! The past 30 years living at home, I have no idea what that machine was for! I remembered when I was a kid, I used to pretend it was an orange juicer and played juice seller with my brother!

My mother then showed me how to make buttons and instantly I fell in love with this machine and what it could made. When I got married, my mother gave it to me as a wedding gift which to me will always always be something I will protected and keep for the rest of my life.

In the mist of it all, I had a fabric and lace store running (I am truly blessed isn't it !) . It wasn't at all hard to think of what to make, the problem is I have no time for all the designs I had planned to list! To me, button making is more than just a craft, it is like a traditional passed on to me by my mother. When I make them, I think of her, when I sell them, I hope I am doing her proud. One day maybe I will be able to pass it to my daughter when it time and meanwhile it is really fun to see her pretending that it is a juicer! Serendipity indeed!

I am constantly, ceaselessly working on new designs , I love sourcing fabric from all over the world to use in my work. I wish I can create all that is in my head but sometimes time is a factor as I am also a full time mum to an amazing 11 years old daughter . But all will come to pass. The support from my customers is something I am forever grateful for and spurns me on!

I planned to slowly introduce more products in my store and I hope you will like them. Thanks for supporting handmade !

Love Jessie

❀ A Little About My Handmade Fabric Buttons ❀

I have just relocated back to France after spending 4 years in Asia. I am so glad to be back in this charming country and plan to have a lot of new designs very soon!

My mother gave me her 45 years old button machine as part of my wedding gift. I never would have thought I would fall in love with this simple craft. It goes hand in hand with my love for fabric and lace!

Every button is made by hand using my vintage button machine. I source fabrics from all over the world for my little creations. They can be use for...

* Plastic shanks ( for sewing onto fabric)
* Metal Flat backs ( for earrings or scrap booking)
* Ponytail hair holders ( for accessorizing your hair!)
