On the Button Floozies blog
I recently took part in this swap with the festive season approaching - we had to make 3 button ornaments which could either be hung from a Christmas tree or accent a table or shelf. They had to be decorated with buttons but buttons did not have to be the only embellishment.
I decided to decorate 3 blank wire heart hangers by adding a main strip of ribbon, then sewing on assorted mainly vintage buttons and adding ribbon or other trim. Here are the finished hearts, which my swap partners have now received. (Sorry the photos aren't very good - they were taken on a dull day so the light was bad.)
The deadline for posting is today (we were all early in our group) and next weekend I can post piccies of the ornaments I received back, so watch this space. Actually, I can't at the moment post any pictures as our main computer is kaput and I am working on our very
slow backup computer which can't load photos. I will try and post when I can but my swap partners were Zoe (who doesn't have a blog); Sherry from Sherry's Simple Blog and Mrs A from It's An Alien Life.
