I'm not into sewing but I like the fabric and buttons that Stampin' Up! has now. Here's a card we did at both Stamp-A-Stacks this month that uses the big buttons as the center of a punched flower:
After I took this picture, I decided to color in the "Thanks" in Tangerine Tango to match the button and ribbon. That was how the card was done at the Stamp-A-Stacks. There was lots of color variation with different buttons and matching ribbons, most of which were current colors but discontinued ribbons. The saying and flower stem, from Thanks For Everything, were stamped in Chocolate Chip and Old Olive. The chocolate chip flower is the Fancy Flower punch.
