    The facing page poem reads:

    “Buttons are delightful doodads,”
    Says a fishwife who reviews shads.
    “They will last through any new fads,”
    States a pair of kangaroo lads
    To their neighbor, Marilou Gladds.

    Adds famed button expert Clay Kee:
    “If you snub them when you wakey,
    Then you’re making a mistakey,
    Coming to eat breakfast nakey!”

      this is just so amazing, i am trying to make one right now and told everyone about yours! how did you print the poem out? on fabric? or did you hand write it with a fabric marker?

      thanks! the poem is printed on fabric transfer paper and then ironed onto the linen page. i'm sure you could do it any number of ways!
