* embroidered button buttons

Posted on October 1st, 2007 by maitreya. Filed under Cross Stitch/Embroidery.


My contribution to greetingart’s embroidered button swap. I think my idea was better than my execution on these. It’s really hard to embroider a perfect circle and then center it perfectly on a button blank. Oh well. They still turned out pretty cute.

I packaged them sewed to fabric fused to card stock and cut with pinking shears.

    They’re so cute! And the packaging! I just threw mine in a ziplock and now I feel really bad. I haven’t mailed them yet – maybe I’ll go dig them out.

    Very, very cute presentation. Good job! I just finished up mine and am sending tomorrow. Now you make me want to package them better. Oh, well, I have to let them go as is. I put them here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/calicodaisy/.

    Oh my gawd, the buttons are beautiful! That is so crazy cool, and must have been very time consuming. I love it! Thanks for such a cool site, PattieWack

    Your buttons are soooooo beautiful. The embroidery is smashing!

    They’re fabulous! Here’s a trick I use to help center fabric on those button blanks – spray the back of your fabric with a little 505 or other temporary spray adhesive. It keeps the fabric from moving around when you attach the other half.
