I've been searching for a source for large (1 3/4" to 2") buttons and I'm coming up short. Anybody have any ideas? I'll cover my own as a last resort.

The Sewing Place has some large buttons. I've had very good service when ordering from them.

I'd try M&J Trims. They have lots of buttons. In the store I have seen buttons larger than 2".

You might also check out knitting stores. They usually have interesting and large buttons.

HTH!

Does anyone have a new source for the large buttons I am seeing on jackets this year? I am looking for 1 1/2 or
2 inch buttons (40 or 50MM) in just a plain 4-hole style.

I just got an Anthropologie catalog in the mail and they seemed to be on most of the jackets. Maybe the homesewers will just have to wait for these!
