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?


  1. I think they're adorable!!!

  2. This is a seriously cute idea. I have tons of buttons. Thanks for posting x

  3. They look perfect for cards. Thanks for sharing.
