OT: Bug Buttons
I know, a strange request but I am finishing up a bug jar quilt for my Grandson in between socks for my daughter. I want to embellish the quilt with Bug Buttons. Does anyone know of a vendor for these? Thanks so much! :sunny:

Are these the kind of buttons you are looking for? Other than a few like ladybugs and butterflies bugs are hard to find. Lots of adorable animal ones though!
