from the pattern: "Buttons of different colors were sewn to help me keep my needles organized since I do different kinds of needlework. That way, I keep all the needles for one purpose at the same location using the color coded buttons:"
---------------------
Such a wonderful idea to do this!!! I love the entire teacup idea. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the link, Crafty Bear! I collect old tea cups, so now I know when I see a cup that I like that has a flaw in it (like a crack), I don't have to bypass it! Great idea!!
