Which button is the PERFECT button???
That's what I'm always asking myself when making something new ~
So I dump out jars of them so I can pick through
to find just the right one.
Aren't they like little jewels???
I even have them sorted into colors!
That really helps when trying to find the right one.
I found a beautiful old earring that's perfect for one of the sachets!
Yes, it was in the pink button jar for some reason and I'm glad it was.
I just removed the clip-on back and sewed it right on!
Here are the pretty lavender sachets I just finished!!
I've used quilt scraps, doilies, vintage laces, embroidered linens and
gorgeous old buttons. Each sachet truly is a one-of-a-kind!!
I just love using these forgotten fabrics, buttons and trims to give them a new life.
They've all been listed in my Etsy shop if you want see more photos ~
OH!!! And I had a new idea!!!
I took this precious, tattered and stained baby bonnet and
FILLED IT WITH LAVENDER!
I simply sewed up the front, filled it with fresh lavender buds and
then sewed the neck closed. I added an antique lace bow and sweet button
to finish it all off. Then the ties became a hanger!
It's listed in my shop too ~
I love looking at beautiful, old things like this.
They outlived their original purpose but by re-purposing them
we still get to enjoy their beauty.
I've been busy!!! And that's a really good thing ~
Wishing you a wonderful Thursday precious friends,
hugs and love,
