I made this little button bag last week from one of my abandoned embroideries and am joining Rachel of Ten Hour Stitcher today for the Fully Finished Gallery SAL, celebrated on the 10th of each month.
I´m not sure where this pattern came from but it was enthusiastically stitched some time ago with the idea of covering a jewellery box or similar and was never given a proper finish......
...because at the time, yours faithfully here, just assumed that the embroidery would miraculously fit the box top without any measurements having been taken into account and ignoring the possible eventuality if it did not. It did not, so the design was abandoned.
I looked at it again last week and instead of embroidering little flowers in each square of the pattern, as was my original idea, I chose to place different buttons and make a bag to hold just my white and neutral buttons.
I used a green fabric from stash for the main fabric and then placed a large doily over the front to decorate a bit.
At first I lined the bag with a plain white fabric and then decided that it really needed a soft white satin and was redone.
and added a narrow piece of plain trimming around the pattern,
lots of buttons to fill the bag. I love the feel and sound they make jumping about inside.
What have you all been doing lately? I´m having problems with my mail carrier and am way behind with visiting and answering everyone which I hope to get sorted out soon.Until next time.
