Some of my patterns

Large buttons 1


I suddenly found some buttons I'd been given ages ago by Crazy Mom in this wonderful gift.

Well I knew they were there but like most things they had to wait for that moment when I knew what they were going to be used for!!!  Suddenly I had a 'yen' to play with buttons again.  These are large two hole buttons and as I hadn't got a pattern for that size I had to 'invent' one!!  

This is the result of a few days of playing around.  It's only rings and chains with a 'few' (ha, ha, cough, cough, splutter, splutter) beads added!!  Do I feel Christmas coming on too?!?!?!  There are more of these to come plus a variation next week.

Obviously these can be made in other colours but for me this will be the colour that I'll wear for now.  Here's the pattern!!

  13. LOVE this! What a great use of a two-hole button, complete with a 3-D effect! The color possibilities are endless, and these colors are wonderful for the holidays! Your blog is like looking into a treasure chest, with new surprises all the time! Amazing and fun! Now I have to look in my long-neglected button box!
