vintage fabric covered buttons.....

Good morning

This morning I wanted to show you all some buttons I have covered in vintage fabrics.  They look so lovely I think, and I am very happy with the outcome.

I am going to use a little of my precious paisley find (see previous posts) and I am going to cover some buttons in that as well for the back of a cushion cover I am making from vintage linen with embroidery and applique panel on the front.

It is very enjoyable, covering buttons, I love doing it and the results are fabulous if done with care.  It is wonderful to see such beautiful fabrics being used in this way....

You can stitch them on to cushions or applique pictures or Christmas stockings, which I did for my ice skate design last year.

I had the most amazing time at the show on Friday and will upload pictures of my finds and the show for you to see next week.... Don't miss it!

Anyway I must away....... Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Stitching !

    1. Thank you Josie, I like them because you can stitch them to a cushion and instantly make it look different. Thank you for your lovely comment.
