Cute as a Button

I actually started this project somewhere in June but i got distracted with alot of things and so i kept putting them aside to do other projects, but i just wanted to show you what i've done so far :)


Cross stitched buttons, thanks to the free button charts that i got from cross stitcher magazine, i could make these cuties.


I bought more blank buttons on ebay and also bought the aida fabric for cross stitch at my local haberdashery. I then experimented by making the buttons into a pin/badge and a ring, which i think the result is kinda cute :)


but as i said, i need to make alot more if i wanted to sell them in the craft fayre or in my shop, just hope i wont keep putting them aside and do other things :p
Wishing everyone a lovely weekend!

  3. Those are just so adorable Susan! I love the little toadstools and the union jack (well all of them really!!). I think they look very pretty as rings..or they would be lovely magnets for the fridge.

  7. COL..I so like your post title because it's soooo TRUE! Those rings are a most clever idea. With my new ring gift from Elizabeth, I'm excited about fun rings. I think these will sell like hot cakes. Oh, do make more...and remember you can always put them in your online shop, too! How exciting!

    Ta-ta for now,

  12. I have done a lot of cross stitch, but never buttons. My eyes will not allow any hand work now. How lovely it would be to have buttons like that. Great job.
