|Indigo sweater piece with buttons placed in desired positions...|
the FIRST idea.
|Though I wanted to include the smaller buttons, the embroidery needle with thread would not fit through the holes in them. So sad, but one must be flexible and adjust as needed.|
Small buttons are out of the picture for this project.
|Here's the final line-up.|
|Vintage buttons from Aunt Lella's button jar.|
(My Great Aunt who taught me so much about sewing!)
I LOVE this bright yellow button.
|The blue mottled, green, and red buttons.|
|I used pieces of left-over embroidery thread, so each was a different color.|
(You know how I love to show you the reverse side along with the other small details.)
|After stitching the long edges together to make a casing for a piece of elastic.|
|Next step: threading the elastic.|
|The finished Button Bracelet on Benjamin Lion, who is my model for this evening.|
|Benjamin likes the yellow button, too!|
