Abbie, at the Button Floozies has declared this to be the International Week of the Button! What fun. I love buttons. Right now I'm too busy to do much, but here are a few projects I've made with buttons.
Just a few buttons on a spring pillow. These are mother-of-pearl, not old, but pretty nonetheless.
A few white buttons in different sizes and shapes around the top of a linen bag. I hang this in my kitchen in the summer to hold flowers or herbs.
A cozy fall pillow made with a recycled sweater (felted) and finished with wooden and leather buttons. I love the textured look.
A summer Sunday afternoon spent stitching and thinking resulted in this collage piece. It's still pinned up on my bulletin board - I don't really know what to do with it, but I surely enjoyed making it. I added buttons here and there.
And this little pillow sits on my bed. I embroidered the words, then added buttons all around and then appliqued the heart to the toile with a buttonhole stitch. This pillow makes me smile when I see it.
I'm writing two exams this week - next week I'm starting on Christmas crafting, finishing up of projects and more....
