(not the literary kind. The soft and adorable kind.)
I've suddenly gone nuts for dorset buttons.
Just in time for craft fair season, too. They are kind of a super amazing use for leftover sock yarn (the smooth stuff works best.)
Here they are on the cards, looking all cute and packaged:
Squeee! It's so much easier to make something like this look nice than it is a hat. Hats are awkwardly shaped at best, when they don't have a head inside them.
Some other things I've been tinkering around with:
(I got one of those little fabric button making kits- SO FUN. SO EASY. I have a bunch I want to put on hair clips, but the backs are recessed and I haven't figured out the best way to attach them yet... the super glue wouldn't take. Perhaps hot glue.)
Recycled film and chain bits.
Vintage loops + leftover Camelspin from my Ishbel (which is blocking in the bedroom as I type) + recycled findings pried off old jewelry = oo, neat.
In other news, I am wearing the most awesomely ridiculous shirt ever:
Hooray for Threadless $9 sales! I should've gotten a size smaller, though... it's not quite as clingy as I like 'em. And sadly it seems that the t-shirt gods have taken my very favorite shirt (Loyal Army, featuring happy planets and a vampire UFO) off into the ether as retribution. I hope it comes back :-(
