To show you've completed this Badge Bit, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
-  an article of clothing with buttons on it
-  the buttons no longer on the article of clothing
-  your button jar with the buttons in it


Ah,  this shirt has been on the "go" list for a while, but it's been such a good friend for many years.  Despite people always thinking I work in whatever store I'm shopping in while wearing it!

I got this hand-me-down from a friend a few years ago (the perks of being short!), but after getting a new summer cover-up, I decided to harvest the buttons.

I've been using my Granny's old button jar, it's got buttons off anything a kid has lost since the 70's.

I am downsizing our masses of clothes hanging out of drawers, everywhere! Here is a worn-out shirt with two sizes of buttons, plus some I found at a second-hand store, plus some from the inside bottoms of shirts (the extra button shirts come with)

Ok, I should have the missing picture this time. I harvested buttons from a few shirts, and started a button jar.
