I wasn't expecting such a huge bag of buttons when I ordered these. They look really impressive. There are roughly 1000 pieces in the set and I think, for the price, thats a real bargain. The buttons themselves are great quality and they are all mostly bright and colourful. There's a few dark colours, but not many. The majority are round shapes, but I did get 1 large heart shaped button. It does say on Amazon however, that there is a chance of getting tear-drop, flower-like or star-shaped designs so I guess it's just down to pot luck.
I bought the buttons to use when crafting and they would be useful for so many projects such as sewing, scrapbooking or picture making. They would also be brilliant for kids art projects because the colours are so varied and bright.
These buttons are a great buy. Even if it's just for putting away until you need an emergency replacement button on your clothes! The possibilities are endless.
