Would folks want to buy them individually? Or should I tie them/bag them together in jumbled up lots, or in sets? I decided in the end that presentation was important, so had me some fun with black card, home-made labels, hole punch, wire and guillotine.
And a few hours later they looked like this.
and beads like this:
so that I ended up with lots of little cards of sets of buttons, ready to send to the gallery.
... and when you need to sew a button on, you need a needle, (seamless link there!) and how lovely to be able to keep my needles in this gorgeous needlecase, handmade by Su at Living on the Edge which I was lucky enough to win last week.
It is made from beautiful fabric designed by Celia at Purple Podded Peas using her own prints and the design-your-own-fabric service offered by Spoonflower. You can read the fascinating background to all that on their blogs.
Thank you so much Su and Celia!!
Which reminds me .... I must do a giveaway in time for Christmas - would the cards of buttons be a good idea for a giveaway maybe? I shall do it - soon!
