I was actually at Hobby Lobby yesterday & looking for these buttons that you can cover with fabric, because I was going to make some earrings after seeing them on your blog... however, either I don't know what I'm looking for, or they just didn't have them, so I left empty-handed. May try the fabric store this weekend & maybe they'll have them!
