|A great jar with rounded square corners needs a label. You will see the entire jar shortly.|
I measured the jar label in order to make the pattern to cover it.
|This time I want to embroider "Buttons" on my sweater piece, so I traced the pattern onto tracing paper and wrote the letters as I want them. This is it!|
|I have cut my sweater piece and also cut out the tracing paper template for the embroidery.|
Now you can see the jar. I love square jars!
|The tracing paper is pinned to the piece so I can now get out my floss and start sewing.|
This is the very same technique I used for my Scissors Case on April 5th.
|The stitching is finished, but I am not sure how well this has turned out until I tear away the tracing paper. I must take a Very Deep Breath first. :-/|
|The process of taking away the paper has to be done very gently not to pull the stitching out of whack.|
|You can see my little pile of tiny pieces of tracing paper. The tweezers are an essential element as a helper to accomplish the task.|
OK, it's readable. I'm happy.
|Now the same drill as the last 2 nights: the gluing of sweater to jar.|
|A nice improvement.|
|Taking its place on the shelf with my White Button container.|
Tonight's jar holds all manner and color of buttons. Until I sort them otherwise they will live happily together here. I like the mish-mash of variety.
|Of course you may know by now that I LOVE buttons.|
Goals For Everyone Tomorrow:
1-Observe the buttons on your shirt, dress, or coat.
2-Look at the details on them.
Think what a brilliant invention buttons are!
Maybe ask Google about the history of buttons. :-]
