I hardly ever post but since there is little traffic on the list,  
thought I'd throw this one out to the group:
In making holiday appliques: snowmen, Santas, etc., I have a need for  
round button-type eyes.  Those little 1/4 inch black 2-hole buttons.  
Used to be able to get them at JoAnn's but not so much anymore.  
Online, have found one has to order 9000 (or about as many it seems)  
of them.  I checked a lot of the mail order quilt/sew shops (Nancy's  
Notions, Connecting Threads, Nordic Needle, Just Another Button,  
Fabric Shop, etc.) and am not coming up with a good source of just a  
few, maybe a dozen or so, black petite in 1/4 inch or 6 mm size.  Do  
you have a source?

Thanks for any help!

Try Michaels, or Walmart.
Or, I can look at my collection of many buttons and see what I have, as long as they don't all have to matchy-matchy? Let me know!

Thanks Polly Esther.  If I can't find them at Walmart or Michael's,  
I'll give your site a buy.

They sell them at one of my semi-LQS.  Please let me know if you need
to contact them.
