Baby Bling Buttons

Several shops came back from the February 2013 TNNA trade show in Long Beach with tiny crystal buttons with baby shanks. Needle in a Haystack has just posted photos and great information about what I call the baby bling buttons.

Their real name is Crystaletts.  They are very small (3mm) rhinestone buttons with tiny loop shanks you can push through a hole on your canvas to secure on the back.  NIAH has stocked several colors of the buttons with mostly gold settings, although they come in nickel or black metal frameworks as well.  They would look very nice as buttons on Santa's suit or as the center of fantasy flowers.  Time to rummage through your stash and see who needs baby bling buttons!
