Today I´m joining Heather of Stitching Lotus for the Smalls SAL monthly check-in. I embroidered a label for a jar of buttons.
The pattern is a free one from Isazabelle and can be found here. I also tried out a new variegated thread in our shops by DMC called Coloris.
I have a box of buttons holding, not pretty quirky buttons like those that abound our needlework shops nowadays and are difficult to resist ..
... but a sad box of ordinary buttons which were saved, along with zips, before discarding clothing thirty odd years ago when my children were small and I did a lot of sewing. They have provided an untiringly faithful service over the years and therefore are meritorious of something prettier.
Now I would like one or two fancy jars to hold the buttons as they look decorative and pretty on shelves.
I added a few teeny weeny buttons to the finished pattern, edged it with a rather dull blue cording which I had on hand and backed the piece with interfacing and then glued it to the jar.
I think this is an approvement on my old box but I do need another one .. or two.
Thank you for visiting.
