What I Love at Interweave

Dorset Buttons Webinar
I took this class when it ran live. I’ve been into buttons for a while. I’ve covered buttons with embroidery and used them on clothes and bags, and I’ve applied button embellishments to embroidery.
Now I’m making buttons to embellish embroidery. Got that? Among other things, I like the idea of a stitched button as the “other end” of a book thong: It’s cool; it’s relatively fast to create; and it adds a nice bit of weight. I also like the idea of stitching buttons for use on bead-encrusted embroidered barrettes.
With our Finish It In ’14 focus this year, I’m reminded of this book. Embroidery hoops can serve as simple frames for embroidery projects, and this books demonstrates how. I like the suggested methods for altering hoops to pretty them up, and I like the mobile and jewelry-hang-up ideas. The book also contains patterns and project instructions, but I used it as an idea generator.
