About The Old Button

The Old Button

Fresh ideas with old fashioned quality; fun gifts for the young - and the young at heart!

I’m Sharon, also known as The Old Button. I live in South Wales with my fantastic husband, two gorgeous teenage children that love performing arts, and a couple of pesky cats. I work part time in the NHS, and have a second “job” as Mum’s taxi, but my “me” time is reading, sewing and designing – I make stage costumes as well – and writing blogs.

Through The Old Button I design and make an eclectic mix of hand crafted items for children and the home, using both new and recycled fabrics embellished with hand embroidery, applique and buttons. The name, The Old Button ( Y Hen Botwm in Welsh ) is inspired by a box of old buttons my grandmother gave me when I started making my own clothes as a child.
