I don' do Facebook so here's my daily update: I'm still obsessed with buttons. I've begun making hair pins from them, but there hasn't been much interest so far on Etsy. What do you guys think?
I mixed both new and old buttons on most, though a couple are purely vintage buttons. They're all stitched to a circle of felt that has a strip on it to hold the hair pin.
I'm beginning to think this is my fave.
Though truthfully, I love the pop of this one too.
And I think this one sings.
This one's not my fave, though it is all vintage buttons.
This last is a bit of silk ribbon embroidery I did back in the late '80s. As with so many things, I never finished it once the embroidery was done so instead I made a covered button of it. And never used it. It's been in my button box since God made the Brazos river!
Thanks in advance to you lovely people.
