This past Christmas, my parents moved away from my childhood home on the coast of New England. My mother gave me a collection of sea glass and shells as a gift so that I would have something to remember the ocean.
Right after the holidays, I popped a button off of my peacoat and lost it. I didn't want to repair the coat with a mismatched button, so I decided to make some sea glass buttons instead.
I found sea glass hard to photograph against the white background, so I am using red fused glass cabochons
for this instructable. The directions for sea glass are exactly the same.
I created this instructable for the Sew Useful Contest
