These are a few of this months makes.
My first attempt at crocheting and it had
to be a daisy of course.
Finished off with a little lemon button it is now
ready to hang on a cardigan or bag perhaps?
The following few photos are of some buttons I've made
using vintage fabrics.
Rosy rose buds...
faded posies on white...
soft eiderdown fabric...
and a single rose.
I'm in the process of setting up a
little online shop to put these up for sale in.
Finally after much debate about the pelmet frill needed
in my little dinning area and which fabric to choose
I ended up using an old tablecloth!
Very pleased with the results though.
My nieces came round recently for a sewing day and
Lydia decided that she wanted to make the
chicken on the front of one of her old t-shirts
into a toy and it must have a skirt!
Not the easiest of tasks when you look at the size
of said chickens legs and the size of said
A turning nightmare ensued but I'm happy
to say we got there in the end, skirt and all!
These are a few buttons I made for myself...
to go on a beautiful pink aran cardigan that I bought
on holiday in Cornwall.
The buttons on the cardigan were dark blue
and looked like they might run in the wash
so I replaced them with these vintage ones.
I was then able to happily wash my gorgeous
pink cardi as it did have rather a sheepy smell to it!
Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday.
