Today I´m joining Heather of Stitching Lotus for the Smalls SAL monthly check-in. I embroidered a label for a jar of buttons.
The pattern is a free one from Isazabelle and can be found here. I also tried out a new variegated thread in our shops by DMC called Coloris.
I have a box of buttons holding, not pretty bright quirky buttons like those that abound our needlework shops nowadays and are difficult to resist ..
... but a sad box of ordinary buttons which were saved, along with zips, before discarding clothing thirty odd years ago when my children were small and I did a lot of sewing. This button box has always sat in the dark depths of my wardrobe and as its contents have provided an untiringly faithful service over the years they are meritorious of a handsomer receptacle.
I added a few teeny weeny buttons to the finished pattern, edged it with a rather dull blue cording which I had on hand and backed the piece with interfacing and then glued it to the jar.
Thank you for visiting.
