Today's little diversion - buttons, felt and embroidery thread.
I saw something similar on Pinterest and couldn't resist having a go.
So I sorted through my button collection to find suitable buttons - ones with four holes, not two.
Narrowed down the candidates - a metal one, some shell ones and a few with a bit of colour.
I attached the button to the felt with a nice cross stitch and embroidered some petals.
Snipped round the outside and there you have it - I think this one looks like a sunflower.
They are so quick to make, I had three more completed in no time.
I think they would look good as brooches or they would make gorgeous embellishments on a birthday card. What do you think?
