It took a little longer than I expected (well, okay, a lot longer), but the animal buttons have all finally been swapped out, and will be on their way home tomorrow. They were amazing. Seriously. I wanted to keep all of them, but refrained and played fair.
These are just a few of the amazing creations that I got to see and touch in person. Such a lot of talent and creativity all in one place. There are other photos in the Embroidered Buttons Flickr! group, search for "animalswap" in the group photo pool and you'll see everything that has been uploaded by the swappers so far (ladies, make sure to get your photos in there and please don't forget to tag them).
I made about 28 buttons this time around, and am still not tired of hearing that little *snap* when you click the backs onto the covered buttons. More, more, I want more!
I'm already starting to dream up all sorts of themes for the next round...
