|Buttoned Up Valentine|
She had sorted them by color and size.
They were stored in a screw / nail box.
Looking at all these buttons, I was overwhelmed with what to do with them. After all, how many generations do you think these buttons would serve. Then, I remembered seeing something similar on Pinterest.
I pulled out my cross stitch fabric scraps and found a lovely piece of linen that was perfect. I drew a freehand heart and then started selecting buttons, previewing them as I went. Several hours and many miles of white thread later, I had this dear little guy. Click on the picture to embiggen the picture and see all the buttons. They are mah vo lous!
Just look at all the colors!
Aren't they terrific?
Now, all I need to do is give it a little press, stretch it in the frame, viola! Custom Valentine's Day art!
