    I was looking through the O+S flickr page and came across a picture with something called a secret sissy button. What is it? I tried googling it…I don’t suggest that…:-/ lol

    I am not sure the protocol on linking other’s Flickr photos, so admin can remove if it isn’t okay. She gives a description here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/magonomics/15347834474/in/photolist-7uM4MS-fPh3gD-fF7ccm-pamHD9-fKGzXQ-t3o9z5-poeEtL

    I think it’s ok to link to public photos, we do that in the thread for pointing out great sewing we’ve recently seen. What a completely sweet little detail! Maggie always has the best ideas.

    Sorry I wasn’t more clear!

    This started a few years back when I took my five year old niece to the store to pick out fabric to make her and her sister Tinkerbell and Periwinkle dresses. (Periwinkle is Tinkerbell’s long lost twin sister for those of you who haven’t watched Secret of the Wings) We were all set to check out with materials for two Fairy Tale Dresses and Nora saw a button that she just had to have.

    Obviously the Fairy Tale Dress doesn’t require a button but she had been so good the whole time (and I wanted to avoid a meltdown in the store) so I figured why not just buy the $2 buttons and sew them on the inside of the dress. The girls LOVED it so now I sew a button on the inside of all their dresses.

    It’s a fun way to use up random/extra buttons you have around or if you see something cute but doesn’t really go with the style of the dress.

    I don’t add them on stuff for babies, feels like an unnecessary risk to add a potential choking hazard. (Not to mention what if they rolled over on it and it caused them to wake up from an otherwise very long nap?!)

    I sew random unnecessary buttons on ALL the time. For a younger child, it makes them feel like they are contributing to the design and have “buy in” and they wear it with pride. My now 6 year old will sit with me after I’ve culled the selection a bit and chooses. Pockets are a great place for decorative buttons!

    Very sweet! Now I know what to do with all those buttons I’ve let S buy over the years to reward her for her patience at the trim store…
