that I'd had in mind. I've also hit some yard sales and plan on repurposing some
items. Here are two of my latest projects.
The pink flower below is my favorite. I love the frayed edges. In its former life, it was a pillowcase. I got it for 25 cents at my neighbor's yard sale! And there are a dozen or so left to make! What a bargain. Most of the buttons I used were vintage (just plain old) and a few were purchase several years ago at Hobby Lobby.
I had some spare time a couple of weeks ago in the evenings and wanted to give it a shot. I'd seen various tutorials on some of my favorite blogs, and thought "I can do this!"
This portrays a reminder to myself... get some gloves before you use super glue again!!! That stuff stays on your fingers forever! Ok, maybe a few hours, but it felt like forever. I made these clothespin magnets last year at Christmas, but didn't like the original magnets I used. This time I use a stronger magnet. Big improvement!
I'm considering opening an etsy store. Any fellow bloggers with one? I'd love some input!
The flower below just happened to match perfectly with my zip-up hoodie.
The blue/maroon flower was my first attempt. It came out a little crooked, but I still love the way the buttons looked on it. My daughter said the fabric looked "grandma-ish". I'm going for vintage/retro - so I'm not offended.
