How much fun are these 9-hole buttons?! I love the possibilities that open up with being able to write words with these buttons! 9-holes means you can pretty much embroider any letter. Now these particular buttons were handmade, with the full tutorial available here by Derek & Lauren of The Curiosity Shoppe. Not sure I necessarily want to dive into the world of making my own buttons (that could be a job unto itself). You can however score 9-hole buttons on Etsy and other random online venues, which is probably a bit more my speed these days.
